Event description

Description

The McMaster Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Initiative is pleased to invite you to our upcoming Current Research in Engineering, Science & Technology (CREST) Meeting, which will take place at McMaster University on Friday, March 9th and Saturday, March 10th, 2018.

CREST is an interdisciplinary celebration, not only of women in science and engineering, but also of the exciting research being conducted in these domains more broadly. CREST offers an excellent venue for students, postdocs, and faculty of all genders to present their research in an interdisciplinary environment, network with local academics, and learn more about research opportunities in academia or industry through a series of professional development workshops, interactive career panels, and social mixers. A tentative schedule will soon be available on our website.

We are also excited to announce this year’s Keynote Speaker, Dr. Myra Fernandes, a professor in Psychology at the University of Waterloo and recipient of numerous prestigious achievement awards such as the Canadian Psychological Association New Researcher Award, Ontario Early Researcher Award and Outstanding Performance Award (2016, 2013, 2009).

Online conference registration and abstract submission is now open. We welcome all graduate and undergraduate students, postdocs and faculty in the sciences, health sciences, and engineering to submit an abstract. Conference presentations are 15 minutes (including questions) and should be aimed at a general science audience to facilitate interdisciplinary discussion.

If you do not wish to present at the meeting, you may also register as an attendee and come for as much or as little of the meeting as you like. CREST 2018 is free for non-presenting attendees and registration will include attendance to all events, lunch and light refreshments during networking breaks.
