CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Time Thursday, April 16 at 08.15 – 17.15
Venue Arvo -Building, Lääkärinkatu 1, seminar room A308
Improve your skills to present your research work
Receive feedback to enhance the quality of your work
Participate in the scientific get-together
Submit a structured abstract (of 250 words or less) on your research project latest 18 March 2015 through the following link at e-lomake (also instructions can be found there) https://elomake3.uta.fi/lomakkeet/14318/lomake.html
Participants will be announced by email on 20 March 2015.
You may prepare and present a scientific poster OR prepare and make an oral presentation on a research project. You will be awarded 1 ECTS credit for a presentation and participation.
Based on the abstracts, nine students will be requested to present their work as an oral communication during the symposium and all others will be invited to prepare a poster (but not both). The oral presentations during the symposium will last for 15 minutes, followed by 5 minutes of discussion (to mimic typical scenarios in international conferences). After three presentations, there will be a general feedback session on the conduct of the presentations, with suggestions on ways to enhance the message. Each presentation will be video-recorded and the participants will be given a copy of their own presentation.
The posters will be displayed during a 90-minute lunch break, during which all participants are requested to view the posters. Thereafter, there will be a feedback session to discuss typical characteristics of a “good” poster and to give feedback for each participant who prepared a poster to this symposium.
The allocation to oral or poster presentations will be made based on the topic of research, home school of the PhD student, and the content of the submitted abstract – so that both in the oral presentations and the poster session there would be as wide diversity presentation topics as possible. For all presentations, the organizers will give priority to projects that have already given results (as opposed to planned projects or those that are ongoing but no conclusions can yet be made on the study question).
