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, and Natural Sciences) are welcome, given that their research takes place to the north of the southern limit of discontinuous permafrost (http://arcg.is/1vGHyr).

We are pleased to announce that the 2021 edition of the QNRS will be held virtually on Tuesday, April 13, 2021. The theme of this year’s conference is Many Sciences, Many Peoples, and we look forward to providing a platform and opportunity to integrate these many sciences and peoples together in our collective efforts in northern research.
