2022 Georgia Tech Postdoctoral Research Symposium

Noon to 5 p.m. EDT, Friday, March 18, 2022
Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience (IBB) Building, Suddath Room (1128)

 

Submit Your Abstract to Give a Talk

Abstracts can be submitted here until Friday, February 18 at 11:59 pm EDT. You will be notified if you will present an 10-minute research talk or a 4-minute lightning talk by February 25, 2022.

Georgia Tech postdocs are eligible to submit one abstract each. Postdocs who have a primary appointment at another organization and a secondary affiliation with Georgia Tech may present if there is space available, but they will not be eligible for travel awards.

 

Research and Lightning Talks

Postdocs selected to give a research talk will have ten minutes to present their research and its significance. The format echoes that of traditional research talks and is meant to give an opportunity to prepare for a conference later this year.

Postdocs selected to give a lightning talk will have four minutes to present their research and its significance. The Lightning Talk format was adopted in 2017 in response to feedback that more postdocs should have the opportunity to speak at the symposium. Plus, being able to concisely explain your discovery and its impact to a non-expert audience is a skill that all researchers need to develop.
