Upcoming EU-SPR event: 2020-21 EU-SPR initiative to support young researchers

November 27th, 5pm-7pm, EU-SPR poster session for young researchers (online)


Young researchers (PhD students and post-docs) may be among the ones being most affected by the cancellation of conferences, the inability to do networking in person, the difficulty of travelling and the difficulty of collecting data, due to the pandemic. This EU-SPR initiative should support these young researchers during these times. If you are a young researcher, member of EU-SPR, you are invited to submit. We offer an extraordinary online poster session (selection after peer-review by program committee). Each person can submit one first-authored poster to be displayed. The first author must be a PhD-student or a post-doc without stable contract (as attested by supervisor or head of team).

Submission process: Please send your structured Abstract (Title, Author(s), Affiliation(s), Background, Methods, Results, Discussion, Keywords) by e-mail, by cc’ing your supervisor (important to attest eligibility), to before October 20th, 2020 midnight CET.

Notification of acceptance will be sent out before November 16th, 2020

Poster session will take place online on Friday, November 27th, 2020, 5pm-7pm CET. All first authors must be present. A glass of wine or beer in hand, as you wish!
