Young Scientist Speaker Program
Professionally young researchers at the rank of assistant professors, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students, will be selected to provide oral presentations from the abstracts submitted for poster presentation. Usually time is given for a short lecture of 10-15 minutes to present the highlights, and the details will be discussed during the poster presentation. All young professionals selected to give lectures belong to this category of "lecture + poster". Note that we have this time a session on Chromatin and Epigenetics in the main Conversation, and a separate post Conversation Workshop on Nucleosome Positioning. People who are requesting for the "lecture + poster" consideration, and working in this area may indicate in which sessions they wish to speak. However, the final decision will be made by the Cmte.
In several cases, a senior scientist nominates a young person, and the abstract is reviewed and decision is made by the Organizing Cmte. In many cases, in the registration form, the young person makes a request for giving a "lecture + poster". All abstracts for this category must be received by Feb 1, 2009. In fact in several instances we receive these abstracts much earlier.
The registration form spells out some of the obligations and restrictions associated with the "lecture + poster" category.
