The 2023 Postgraduate Conference will deliberate on the intersections between research and social advancement and the implications for postgraduate research and training. This conference shall offer a platform for research and taught postgraduate students across the globe to interact with each other and share their current and prospective research and learning experiences with established scholars. We welcome proposals relating to the fields of Social Sciences (broadly defined to include those in public health, and the built environment, etc.), Business, and Arts and Humanities. Papers relating to humanitarian and other technologies are also strongly encouraged, especially given the role of technologies in teaching and learning during the pandemic.

The intended presentation can be a completed project or a research proposal, with its focus on any or a combination of the following thematic areas:

  • Theoretical Discourse
  • Methodological Reflections
  • Empirical Research
  • Literature Review and Research Agenda
  • Comparative Research

Students can choose to present their work either orally or via a poster. If the students are interested in participating in the conference as a presenter, please submit an abstract of about 250 words via the registration link (https://lingnan.asia.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9LcNuKLuAhRc2KW) by 28 February 2023 for consideration. All are also welcome to join the conference as a participant.
