The Queen’s Northern Research Symposium (QNRS) is an annual student-run conference that brings together individuals from Queen’s University who are involved in northern research. It provides an opportunity for students to present their research, to network, and to broaden their knowledge of the North. Researchers from any discipline (including Social and Health Sciences, Engineering, Natural Sciences, History, etc.) are welcome, given that their research takes place in or about the Arctic.

We are pleased to announce that the 2022 edition of the QNRS will be held virtually on Thursday, April 14th, 2022. The theme of this year’s conference is A Decade of Research: Connecting Historic Views and New Perspectives. We look forward to providing a platform and opportunity to bridge the past with the future together in our collective efforts in northern research.
