Annual Undergraduate Conference

Since 2015, the Department of History and the Department of Medieval Studies at Central European University in Budapest have been organizing an annual undergraduate conference in August each year. The aim of the conference is to bring together talented undergraduate students from across the world and to introduce them to the academic environment at CEU. Every year, the conference has a different theme, although it is broad enough to enable a large variety of topics across time. 

The language of the conference is English, and the proposals should not exceed 250 words. A call for proposals is posted on this page in early spring every year, and the students can also apply through here. The papers which they are to present should be between 2000 and 3000 words long, and are usually to be submitted by the end of July. All participants are expected to pay a 75 euro fee, which covers three nights’ accommodation in single rooms in the CEU Residence Center, breakfast, coffee breaks and receptions, guided tours, a 72-hour public transport pass, and free Wi-Fi.
