Abstract submissions for the Research Excellence Awards will open on Tuesday 2 April 2018.
Fulltime post doctorate students, early-career researchers and health professionals engaged in research in addition to their clinical practice are invited to submit an abstract for the Research Excellence Awards oral finalist presentations or poster exhibition.
The Research Excellence Awards oral finalist presentations and poster exhibition will take place on Wednesday 1 August 2018 at the Translational Research Institute (TRI).
All abstracts submitted will be considered for an oral presentation if indicated. Three finalists for each of the four submission categories will be selected and invited to present a ‘lightning talk’ during the oral finalist session.
Abstracts not selected for an oral presentation may be eligible for a poster presentation. Poster presenters may be required to discuss their research during an informal poster exhibition adopting the ‘lightning talk’ presentation style.
A lightning talk is a very short presentation lasting only a few minutes. Lightning talks are an entertaining and alternative method of sharing information. The goal of the lightning talk is to articulate the topic in an efficient, insightful and clear manner.
Research Excellence Awards lighting talks are strictly limited to four minutes.
Oral lightning talks are strictly limited to 12 slides, 20 seconds each slide.
