10 March 2022
Please join us for the First AUBH Research Day on 10 March 2022. AUBH Research Day 2022 is an experience where you will explore the extraordinary array of research being conducted by students, faculty, and staff at the American University of Bahrain. The hallmarks of this research day are its diversity and innovation addressing different topics.
The event will provide a platform for participants to share their theoretical knowledge and research findings, foster the exchange of information and cross-fertilization of ideas, and encourage the development of multidisciplinary research across AUBH community and with external stakeholders. The outcome of this event will be utilized in drawing AUBH research strategy for the coming three years.
This is a full-day event that is delivered in a hybrid mode to facilitate attendance from AUBH community and interested employers. We would like to encourage all members of the AUBH community to submit applications and share their work with others.
Research represents a very broad term in this context and could include a scholarly paper, a project you worked on with a faculty member or a recent presentation you gave at a professional meeting. Students are also encouraged to present their scientific and scholarly research conducted during their studies at AUBH.
Participants can join the event and share their work through giving presentations or participating in the poster sessions.
For those who wish to give a presentation, it is required to submit an extended abstract describing the research, its outcomes or work in progress as well as the presentation slides.
Extended abstracts should be between 500-1000 words and the presentation should be prepared to fit in a 15 minutes slot. Please refer to the attached abstract/poster template, explaining the submission requirements in details.
