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

Its aim is 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. The Conference programme can be found below. 


Papers are sought from any scientific discipline.  We welcome submissions by postgraduate students and researchers at the beginning of their research careers, in addition to experienced academics.  Presentations will be around 20 minutes each. 

Anyone wishing to present at the conference should send an abstract of 300 words or less to Ffion Hughes (ff.hughes@colegcymraeg.ac.uk) by 20th of April 2018.

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


Undergraduate and research students are encouraged to display posters on any aspect of their course / research interest as long as it represents a science discipline.  Posters will be judged and a prize of £100 will be awarded to the winner.  If you wish to display a poster, then please let us know in advance.


A warm welcome is extended to all, but please register by 4 June 2018.
