Abstract submission for UBC PDA Research Day 2017 is now open!
Deadline: 5th November for talks, 20th November for posters.
Find all the information about the event here.
We invite abstract submission from all postdoctoral fellows and research associates currently working at UBC departments and affiliated institutes. You can submit an abstract to be considered for a talk or poster. You can also select both options to be considered for a talk and, if not chosen, present a poster instead. If space allows, we hope to accommodate all eligible poster presenters.
The programme is still being finalised, but talks are expected to be 15 minutes in length, including 3 minutes at the end for questions. Talks and posters will be judged, with prizes awarded to the best of each type. The number and nature of prizes will be announced soon!
First, register online for the event.
The conference will be attended by postdocs, students, faculty, and others from all departments and institutes at UBC. Therefore, it is important to target abstracts, talks, and posters for a general, non-expert audience. The judges will also have a broad range of expertise, and suitability for the audience will be a factor in their scoring.
Abstracts should be no more than 250 words; no tables or graphics are permitted. Abstracts will be selected for oral presentations based on quality, interest and suitability for a general audience, and to prioritise a diverse programme.
