Content:

The Welsh-medium Science Conference is held under the auspices of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol.

The conference aims to showcase leading scientific research by Welsh language scientists and through that, nurture a Welsh language scientific community.  The conference provides a platform to present and discuss various topics within the sciences, from fuel cells to fish and from engineering to earth science. To view last year’s presentations, visit the Porth Adnoddau (the Coleg’s resources portal)

 

CALL FOR PAPERS:

Papers from any scientific discipline (STEM) are welcomed.

We welcome presentations from postgraduate students, or early career researchers, as well as experienced academics.

Presentations are usually around 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of questions from the audience. Depending on the format of the Conference, the length of the presentations may have to vary slightly.

All those wishing to present at the Conference should send an abstract of 300 words or less to Ffion Hughes (ff.hughes@colegcymraeg.ac.uk) by 16 April 26 March 2021.

As per usual, presentations will be recorded and subsequently uploaded to the Porth Adnoddau  (the Coleg’s resource portal).

Contributors are encouraged to submit an article based on their presentation, to be considered for publishing in the Coleg Cymraeg’s Welsh-medium academic e-journal Gwerddon.

 

POSTERS

The poster should communicate a scientific idea through the medium of Welsh. You can use a poster that has already been created as part of a module.

There will be two poster competitions, one for undergraduate students and one for postgraduate students.

There will be a prize of £50 each for the winners of both categories.

If you would like to submit a poster, please contact ff.hughes@colegcymraeg.ac.uk by 20 May 2021.

We will release registration details as soon as we confirm whether it will be a virtual or face to face conference.
