Albany 2001: The 12th Conversation

The 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 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".

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, 2001. In fact in several instances we receive these abstracts much earlier. For example see the abstracts section

The registration form spells out some of the obligations and restrictions associated with the "lecture + poster" category.
