Call for Abstracts
In order to make the Lett Symposium a successful event, we need the support of graduate students and we want you to come out and present your research! We are looking for graduate students to present their research findings from their work here at Dal during the Symposium either in the form of an oral or poster presentation.
Oral presentations will be 15 minutes each (consisting of a 12 minute presentation and 3 minute question period), and there are 16 time slots available.
Up to 24 poster presentations can be accommodated during the Symposium (preferably within the size range but not limited to 4’ x 4’).
Abstracts must be submitted by March 24th to Nathieli Schiavi (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Although we would like to accommodate all graduate students who wish to present their research at the Symposium, due to time and space constraints only a limited number of presenters can be accommodated (16 oral presentations and 24 poster presentations). If there are more abstracts submitted then can be accommodated during the Symposium, a selection process will take place. Preference will be given to students nearing completion of their degree. Selection may also be based upon research topic and description.
If you are submitting an abstract, please ensure that it contains the following information:
