SIIECS seminar series - ASC special​​​​

Are you presenting a poster or a paper at the 2024 ASC? Would you like the opportunity to rehearse before the big day in front of an audience and receive feedback?

The Strategic Initiative on Integration of Early Career Scientists (SIIECS) online seminar series provides an informal and supportive forum for especially early career scientists to practice giving oral presentations. During the session, presenters get constructive feedback while using the opportunity to get rid of their 'nervous jitters' before their actual presentation.  ​

A special ASC edition will take place on 13 August 2024.
