General Information

We would like to remind you that this event is public disclosure from the perspective of any patentable technologies. Records of Invention should be filed with the tech transfer before public disclosure.


Please note only postdoctoral scholars and research scientists are eligible to present at the conference, however everyone in the UC Davis community is welcome to attend.
Please note that if oral presentations are full you may be offered the option to present a poster even if you selected a talk. There is limited space and abstracts will be peer reviewed and selected as follows:

  1. Interest of the work to a wide audience
  2. Clarity of the abstract (Clear descriptions for people outside your research field)

Please refrain from highly technical language, abbreviations and jargon specific to your field, as these make the abstracts less accessible to the general community.

Presentation Guidelines

Only postdoctoral scholars and research scientists are eligible to present at the conference, but everyone in the UC Davis community is welcome to attend.

Abstracts

54 abstracts will be selected for oral presentations and the rest will be given the opportunity for poster presentations. Abstracts will be peer-reviewed and the criteria for selection will be based on:

1.      Clarity: clear flow and descriptions, clearly convey the aims and significance of your work

2.      Refrain from highly technical language, abbreviations and jargon

3.      Of interest to wide and general audience

4.      No longer than 200 words.

Oral Presentations

10 min Presentation followed by 2 min of Q&A. Strict!

Sessions will be grouped thematically, but your talk should be understandable and interesting to a general academic audience.

Please make time to upload your slides to the laptop prior to your given session. We recommend PDF format. Alternatively, feel free to bring your own laptop with the necessary adaptors.

Your session chair will be in contact a week before the symposium.

PRIZE! There will be a prize for the best talk and gift cards for the runners-ups. Good luck!

On the day of the symposium, please set up your posters during registration (8:30-9:00am) to allow maximum time for viewing and make sure your poster has been collected before the awards ceremony at 5:00pm.

There will be two poster sessions coinciding with coffee breaks running from 10:30-11:30am (session A) and 3:00-4:00pm (session B). Poster presenters will be allocated a number, with all even numbers to be presented in session A and odd in session B.
