Students may participate in the Symposium in one of the three ways listed below. Participants do not need to submit abstracts.
If you have questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org and your email will be routed to the best person to help you.
OPTION 1 – Virtual Presentation (Synchronous Participation)
If you indicate you will present synchronously, you’ll receive an email with Presenter Schedule and Zoom information. Prepare to present at your appointed time. Each presenter has 10 minutes. Prepare a five-minute presentation and leave five minutes for questions. Your presentation will be a slide deck with key points from your research that you will share as you present.
OPTION 2 – Asynchronous Videos
If you indicate you will pre-record your poster presentation instead of presenting synchronously, record your five minute slide deck presentation, then submit using this form by 5 pm Friday, April 23, 2021 so it can be posted to the VMC website.
OPTION 3 – Asynchronous Posters
If you indicate you will submit a research poster for viewing, you will need to submit your poster by 5 pm Friday, April 23, 2021 so it can be posted to the VMC website. Submit your poster using this form.
If you have issues with your submissions, please email Daniel Lynds email@example.com
