Sunday, October 14, 2018 | Toshi Center Hotel, Tokyo, Japan
The Asian Undergraduate Research Symposium 2018 (AURS2018) was held in Tokyo, Japan. Workshop and Poster Presentations took place on Sunday the 14th of October with optional attendance at The Asian Conference on Education 2018 (ACE2018) on Saturday the 13th and Monday the 15th of October, 2018.
The Asian Conference on Education, one of the largest international, interdisciplinary academic conferences in Asia, included The Asian Undergraduate Research Symposium (AURS). AURS provided undergraduates with an exciting opportunity to present and learn from researchers and professionals from around the globe. Following the first three AURS events in 2015, 2016 and 2017, the AURS organisers were again reaching out to undergraduate scholars from across all fields and disciplines to participate in the 2018 symposium. Here, students shared their academic research experiences and the knowledge they have acquired as an undergraduate working with professors or academic mentors.
AURS2018, which took place in a supportive and collegial environment in Tokyo, provided you with a motivating and thought-provoking opportunity to present your research, network with other undergraduates and academics from around the world, and find out how your participation in the symposium could aid you in your future directions. All student presenters also had the chance to attend other academic sessions at ACE as an observer.
We enjoyed seeing you in Tokyo in October and hope to see you again next year!
