April 25, 2018 – April 27, 2018

The UWI celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2018.  The Faculty of Science and Technology Conference 2018 is an opportunity for the Faculty to highlight the contributions of scientific research and application to regional development. In particular, FST Conference 2018 will emphasize the impact of research that addresses national, regional and international societal challenges on the Caribbean region and beyond.

The conference will feature oral and poster presentations of original work, plenary speakers from industry and academia and internationally recognized keynotes. Awards will be given for best presentations by undergraduate and postgraduate students.

One of the highlights of the conference will be a Grand Challenge Competition that will involve student teams vying to design solutions to specific national and commercial challenges that have been identified. The top teams will receive special prizes.

We invite original submissions for oral or poster presentations.  A call for interactive demonstrations and the Grand Challenge Competition will be circulated later.


Abstracts will be peer reviewed and included in the conference proceedings.
