IBACS Meet-and-Speak Event
Date: Thursday, March 23rd & Friday, March 24th, 2017
Location: UConn Alumni Center
The CT Institute for the Brain & Cognitive Sciences will be holding a two-day Meet-and-Speak event where affiliated faculty (from the Storrs campus and UConn Health Center) will give 15 minute presentations describing, in accessible language, the research they have carried out, or propose carrying out, with seed funding previously awarded by IBACS. Graduate Students affiliated with the Institute will be performing short “datablitz” style presentations about their involvement in Seed Funded or related research.
The event will provide an opportunity to learn more about the diverse research that IBACS affiliates are engaged in, and will provide a forum for cross-disciplinary networking.
We shall be providing a buffet lunch, and there will be a poster session each day as well.
Each day will start at around 9:00 (with coffee/tea) and finish at 3:30, with a break at 11:00, a sandwich lunch provided approximately 12:30-1:30 and discussion/poster session from 2:30-3:30.
If you are interested in attending all or part of this 2-day event, please register by March 17 (space and food will be limited). Attendance at each session or each day is not required, and you will be able to specify on the registration form which morning(s) or afternoon(s) you can attend.
Register to attend here.
