CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Abstract Submission Deadline: Friday, March 15, 2013.
Applicants will be notified of their presentation format by Friday, March 22, 2013..
One of the purposes of presenting posters is to provide presenters with the opportunity to talk about their research, but also, in exchange, to receive constructive feedback from the mentors. In general, this takes the shape of a relaxed discussion about rationale, approach, analysis and conclusions. Mentors will almost always want to interrupt you to ask pertinent questions or clarify as you go along. Enjoy yourselves and thank you for participating!
