Call for proposals: ASE Annual Conference 2016 – Frontier Science Lecture series, University of Birmingham (7-9 January 2016)

In January 2016, the Association for Science Education will be returning to the University of Birmingham with this flagship science education conference that attracts over 2,500 participants from across the UK and beyond engaged in science teaching from Early Years to A-level.  A core part of the conference programme is the Frontier Science Lecture series. This is curated by the host University and aims to showcase research from all aspects of science to offer our audience of science teachers a chance to enhance their subject knowledge.

The proposal call is now open and you are strongly urged to take this major opportunity to promote your research to a large cohort of UK Science School teachers.  This may also be of interest to PhD students and/or research fellows.

To provide coherence, proposals within the following themes are currently being sought:

  • Treating and tackling disease
  • From the very big to the very small (and everything in between!): From Particle Physics to Cosmology
  • Engineering the micro-world: Quantum Technologies
  • Human interactions and our natural environment
  • Understanding and enhancing sporting prowess

All proposals will be reviewed by a panel made up of members of the science departments at the University of Birmingham.

The deadline for proposal submissions is Friday, 29 May 2015.

The online submission form is available via Survey Monkey, web link:

If you are interested, or are already planning to participate, please advise Daryl Davies by email accordingly (
