This is not just a traditional conference. It is a unique experience welcoming everyone from all disciplines inside and outside UBC. Help us disrupt the ordinary by showcasing and celebrating the broad meaning of wellbeing in interdisciplinary research and education in NEXUS 2022. 

What is “Be well-Excel” about?

Too often, the term health is perceived as limited to the physical and at times the mental aspects. Is that it? Definitely not! Holistic wellbeing is the optimus of living. We embrace the broadest definition of wellbeing in research and education through interdisciplinary conversations to benefit our society. Applications to present research or lead activities will be accepted until 11:59 pm PST on December 31, 2022. 

What are we looking for? 

Active. Engaging. Audience-centred. Uplifting.

We are looking for presentations and skill-building activities involving wellbeing. We will be accepting a wide range of topics; however, presenters must explicitly be able to spin the topic such that its implications are applicable to wellbeing.    

NEXUS creates space for authentic interdisciplinary dialogue and learning. To do this, we ask presenters to take risks, be brave, and use more creative formats to increase the accessibility and applicability of their work across disciplines. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at

See you at NEXUS 2022! 

Stay connected!
