Frequently Asked Questions
What are Flash presentations?
They are brief, impactful, and convey information about a novel protocol, perspective, technique, or research results. For instance, one Flash Talk may describe an innovative interdisciplinary research outcome. Another may describe results for a pilot/prototype study.
Can I submit an abstract if I'm not an early career researcher?
This symposium focuses on early career researchers, but all researchers are welcome to attend. However, the format of the presentation will be 5 minutes flash talk.
What is the submission deadline for abstracts?
The submission deadline for abstracts is October 2, 11:59 PM EDT..
What is the required format for abstracts?
Abstracts should be 2500 characters or less and include the title, author(s), and a concise description of your research.
Can I include images or figures in my abstract?
Yes, limited use of images or figures is permitted to enhance your abstract's content.
When will I know if my abstract is accepted?
Acceptance notifications will be sent out from December 2023 onwards.
What if I can't attend the symposium on the scheduled date?
