Although we would like to accommodate all graduate students who wish to present an oral presentation at the Symposium, due to time and space constraints there will be a limited number of oral presentations possible during the symposium—so please don’t delay in submitting your abstract!
If a selection process takes place, preference will be given to students nearing the completion of their degree.
Presentations (Oral Talks & Posters)
The focus of the Lett Symposium is research done by Dalhousie Biology graduate students. Accordingly, graduate students from all Dalhousie Biology Streams are invited to give oral or poster presentations on their current research. There will be several oral presentation sessions throughout the day of the symposium. There will also be one poster session.
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.
Poster presentations should be a maximum size of 4’ x 4’.
