CHHS 2020 Research Flash Talk - Call for Presentations

The CHHS Research Flash Talks are rapid-fire sets of 3-5 minute presentations, each delivered by a different faculty or staff member.CHHS Research Flash Talks highlight the ongoing research efforts and projects of our faculty or staff. This event allows the presenter the opportunity to disseminate their research to colleagues in the university and the surrounding communities with the purpose of sparking points of collaboration and future growth.

With support from the Dean’s Office, the CHHS Research Committee will host the CHHS Research Flash Talks on the evening of Wednesday, April 15, 2020, starting at 5:00 PM (refreshments) at the Varsity Center, 418 S. Illinois Avenue, Carbondale, IL. Flash Talk presentations begin at 6:00 PM. Local community members are also invited to attend.

Each faculty and staff member interested in participating will be given 3-5 minutes to briefly introduce their current, concluding, or proposed research to an audience consisting of interested faculty, staff, and community members from both the University and regional area. In addition, faculty posters and textbooks are invited for display. Student submissions are welcomed and will be displayed as poster presentations.

If you are interested in presenting, please submit an abstract following APA guidelines describing your research. These are not peer reviewed; however, all accepted abstracts are posted on the OpenSIUC online repository. The abstract submission is for planning purposes and will be printed in the event program. Multiple abstract submissions are welcome, but time limitations may require us to limit each presenter to only one presentation.

Abstract proposals are due to Cara Doerr no later than 5:00pm on Wednesday, March 25, 2020. If you have questions, please contact Cara Doerr via email at caradoerr@siu.edu or call 618/453-2632.
