The University of East London's 5th Undergraduate Conference will be taking place on Saturday, 7th of November 2015 at UEL, Docklands Campus in London, England. The theme of the conference is "Defining Global Citizenship: Development, Politics and Social Changes". Deadline for abstracts: 1 August 2015.

Students have been invited to write papers on the topics they feel are current today, and to give their views on where development work needs to change.

The Conference is a one day event, and will provide varying forms of review and feedback to suit the varying levels of work that will be submitted. We welcome presentations in different forms, for example poster presentations and short documentaries. All accepted works will be presented, and some of the works will be selected for review by a panel of academic experts, charity executives and journal publishers. All participants and attendees will receive certificates for their attendance, and the participants will be given a book containing all the works that were presented at the conference.

The aims of the conference are:
- To improve the skills and confidence of all the students involved as they write papers to deadline, debate their work in a public forum and receive feedback from academics from various backgrounds and industry leaders.
- To allow students the chance to gain recognition of their work from people outside of their universities.
- To network and develop links with students from other universities.
- To expose the students to publishers and leaders in their field.
