The 14th Edition of the UoM Research Week will be organised by the University of Mauritius (UoM) from 07 November 2022 to 11 November 2022.

The Research Week aims at providing a consolidated platform for staff, students and researchers to interact and carry out peer discussions on ongoing and emerging research issues. The main objective of the Research Week is, therefore, to showcase research being undertaken at the University which to a large extent is in line with national interest.

The Organising Committee welcomes submissions under the Main Theme: “Fostering Research through SDGs to empower Society”.


Members of academic staff, students (including those having benefited or benefiting from research funding from UoM, local or international institutions), researchers from other Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and collaborative partners are invited to submit Abstracts for Oral Presentations and Poster Presentations. Stakeholders from private and public sectors, including alumni are also welcome to participate in this endeavour.

Centres (CBBR, CRSI and ICSTH) and Poles of Research (PREs/PRs) should showcase their achievements through either Poster and/or Oral Presentation under their respective Office/Faculty.

It is compulsory for registered MPhil/PhD students at UoM to participate actively in this 14th edition of the Research Week through any form of presentation of their intended research, or work in progress or achievements to date.

UoM final year undergraduate students are also invited to participate actively in this event.


Up to five (5) Abstracts inclusive of Oral Presentation and Poster Presentation either as first author or presenting author may be submitted. However, only up to two (2) Oral Presentations will be allowed per presenter.

Abstracts, strictly as per the format and related to the event’s Main Theme, should be submitted using the online submission system only by Friday 30 September 2022 Friday 07 October 2022 at latest.

An abstract should not exceed one A4 size page and should be in MS Word format. Kindly ensure that your abstract is read and approved by all co-authors before submission.

All Abstracts should be formatted as per the template and submitted via the online submission system, according to the Abstract Submission Guide, on the following url: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rw2022

In case an Abstract/Paper is not accepted for oral Presentation, the author may consider submitting same as a Poster Presentation.
