Event description

Description

You've worked so hard researching all summer, so why not showcase your work at the SSuRe Program's Symposium Day?

Symposium Day gives you the opportunity practice submitting an abstract, creating a poster, presenting your work, and networking with colleagues and scientists. All non-graduate summer students doing research with an RI appointed scientist are invited to submit an abstract for poster presentation at Symposium Day.There's also the chance to win an oral presentation and best poster prize! Follow the registration prompts to submit your abstract/register for the Symposium Day.

Did we mention there will be prizes? And lunch!

(Don't forget, if your PI is a recipient of the Lunenfeld Studentship, the abstract and poster presentation is a requirement of your summer position! Not sure if this applies to you? Ask your PI!)

Abstract Guidelines:

- Title: max 150 characters including spaces

- Abstract: max 2000 characters including spaces

- If you are co-presenting your poster, each presenter must submit an abstract

- Tips: Abstracts should contain the following details: background, objective/hypothesis, methods, results, and conclusions. Make sure to emphasize your individual contribution to the project!

Poster Guidelines:

- Poster size: 48”W x 36”H

- Make sure to include all authors of the project on your poster

Don't know where to get your poster printed? Here’s a few suggestions: The Printing House, Print Zone, TLAC. You'll be provided with velcro to affix your poster to the boards.

Oral Presentations:

One student from each RI program will be chosen to give an Oral Presentation. If you’re chosen, you’ll have the opportunity to practice and get feedback about your presentation with the experts. Oral presenters are not required to create a poster for the Symposium, but are welcome to have one.
