Please fill in the Abstract Submission Form here, and email your completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for abstract submission is now 11th August 2017. More information is provided on the form.
We will aim to give as many delegates the chance to do an oral presentation but as the Symposium is time limited it may be necessary to change your requested presentation type to a poster presentation. We aim to inform everyone of their presentation/abstract confirmation as soon as possible after abstract submission closes. Please note that there is no obligation to submit an abstract, you can attend as a delegate but it is strongly recommended that you consider presenting, whatever stage you are at in your postgraduate career, Masters or PhD!
Please remember that in addition to submitting an abstract you must register through the Royal Holloway Online Store (see above).
You will be able to add accommodation to your registration - this includes accommodation on the Monday and Tuesday nights and breakfasts on the Tuesday and Wednesday morning. The total cost of accommodation will be £60.
Accommodation will be the historic Founder's Building on our leafy campus, minutes walk from the symposium's location.

The aim of the CQR is to promote interdisciplinary research based on three themes of major importance for understanding Quaternary environmental change: 1) the dynamics of global change; 2) the human dimension of environmental change, and 3) advances in geochronology.
