We welcome trainees of all levels (undergraduate, graduate, or post-doctoral fellows) to apply. We are looking for dynamic presenters who can engage a diverse audience on the theme of mobility. Attendees will include researchers, physicians, policymakers, and members of the general public. Given the diversity of the audience, we encourage you to think outside of the box. Traditional posters will be accepted. However, our goal is to have as many interactive exhibits as possible.
Exhibit ideas may include:
- Demonstrating a measurement technique that you use in your research. Does your study have an interesting questionnaire that people can fill out? Do you use a cool gadget or gizmo that is safe and feasible to use on attendees?
- Showing the results of your study visually. Does your study uses novel technology for imaging? Perhaps you can use pictures or displays to showcase your results instead of words.
If you are interested in presenting a poster instead of an exhibit, we encourage you to get creative with your presentation and delivery. For this audience, a focus on critical findings, real-world examples, and knowledge translation is key. Many of the attendees will be interested in how your research might impact them or those they care about. Students may use MIRA's downloadable poster presentation template, which MIRA will print free of charge for this event. You are also welcome to use a previously printed poster, but please carefully consider how you will present your information.
To assist us in the organization of this event, please fill out the questionnaire below and send your abstract by Tuesday, September 19th. Presentation space is limited.
If you have any questions or would like to inquire about using MIRA’s template please contact MIRA’s Research Coordinator, Audrey Patocs, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
