***DETAILED GUIDELINES***

POSTER PRESENTATIONS

  • The poster session is on Wednesday, February 2nd, 2022 and runs from 5-6:30pm.
  • Please upload your poster using this form by 5pm January 28th, 2022.
  • Remember, the purpose of this conference is to communicate with colleagues from different disciplines, backgrounds, and career stages. Please prepare your poster accordingly. Avoid undefined jargon and difficult-to-interpret figures. Be sure to share the implications of your research beyond your field or subfield.
  • Posters can be of any size! Type size should be legible.

SHORT PRESENTATIONS (5-10 minute oral presentation)

  • Please prepare your remarks to fit within the 5-10 minute window allocated for your talk. Please do not prepare a slideshow designed for a longer talk for your short lightning presentation. Too many slides will distract your audience from the messages we are excited for you to share. Your 5-10 minutes may be better spent giving an overview of your research interests or opportunities for collaboration rather than trying to get through everything in the abstract you submitted. Changing your focus to make best use of your allotted time is accepted and encouraged.
  • Please bring your finished presentation to your panel and be ready to share your screen. Note that we will no longer be collecting presentations prior to the event.
  • Please join the Zoom room 5-10 minutes early. When the session starts, the moderator will make an opening statement and introduce each presenter. Once everyone has presented, we will have a Q&A where attendees will be able to ask questions of the panelists. Panelists are, of course, encouraged to ask each other questions as well.
  • Remember, the purpose of this conference is to spark conversation and/or collaboration with colleagues from different disciplines, backgrounds, and career stages. Please prepare your talk accordingly. Avoid undefined jargon and difficult-to-read figures. Be sure to share the implications of your research beyond your field or subfield.

STANDARD ORAL PRESENTATIONS (10-20 minutes oral presentation)

  • Please prepare your remarks to fit within the 10-20 minute window allocated for your talk.
  • Please bring your finished presentation to your panel and be ready to share your screen. Note that we will no longer be collecting presentations prior to the event.
  • Please join the Zoom room 5-10 minutes early. When the session starts, the moderator will make an opening statement and introduce each presenter.
  • Please prepare your remarks to fit within the time window allocated to your talk. As you have a 20 minute window, you have the ability to go more in-depth than you could with a short presentation. With that being said, please be sure to stay within your allotted time. Once everyone has presented, we will have a Q&A where attendees will be able to ask questions of the panelists. Panelists are, of course, encouraged to ask each other questions as well.
