This conference is a forum to discuss and present research that will impact our understanding of human evolution. If you think your work meets this criterion then you’re invited to submit it – either as a poster or presentation – by filling out the form below. This call for papers is open until the end of January. 

All investigating this fascinating topic are welcome to submit, regardless of your discipline or career stage. Research students or those early in their career are especially encouraged to do so.

There will also be a lightning round after hours. This challenges researchers to present their work in 3 minutes. The goal being to both stretch the skills of participants and give more people a chance to speak.


Presentations will last 15 minutes and media facilities are availible, so you can use a powerpoint or video to aid your talk if you wish.

The three minute thesis competition follows similar guidelines to the events organised by the University of Queensland. Talks must be three minutes long, with only a single powerpoint slide used as an aid. No other media is allowed. The presentation must be a talk (not a rap or poem).

Abstracts for all these events can be entered into the form below. There is a 300 word limit.

How would you like to present your research?
