Call for Abstracts
Postgraduate Bioethics Conference
Deadline: July 15, 2017
The Postgraduate Bioethics Conference (PGBC) is an annual conference for postgraduate student researchers in bioethics. At PGBC postgraduate students and academics working in bioethics come together and share ideas via oral presentations and keynote talks. Workshops in core academic skills and careers are also provided. Over the past ten years, PGBC has become vital for growth of a supportive bioethics student community. Although we hope delegates will find PGBC practically useful for skills development, we also hope they will join us in PGBC’s more ambitious aim: to foster the next generation of bioethics scholars.
PGBC 2017 will take place on 4-5th September 2017 at the University of Oxford, with generous sponsorship from the Analysis Trust, the Society for Applied Philosophy and Wellcome. We look forward to seeing you there.

To apply to give a long or short oral presentation (submit an abstract):
To submit an abstract for either a long or short oral presentation, use the online abstract submission system found here. You will need to create a login to access this system. Abstracts should be in keeping with the Conference Theme (for more information about the Conference Theme, please see the Programme page.) Abstracts should fulfil certain broad criteria (see Criteria for abstracts).
Please note, abstracts received as attachments to emails will not be accepted.
Slots for giving a long oral presentation are limited and are allocated based on the results of the abstract review (reviews are blinded). If you do not obtain a long presentation slot, we will hope to offer you a short (5 minute) slot instead. You may also opt just to give a short (5 minute) oral presentation. These short slots are also limited but we will try to accommodate everyone who wants to present.
The deadline for all abstracts applications is 15 July 2017. We will aim to contact you by 1 August 2017 to confirm whether you have a presentation slot.
