||SABER invites participants to submit abstracts between 100-300 words.
Deadline: March 30, 2015.
Notification of acceptance: April 30, 2015
Abstracts will be considered for one of four possible presentation formats:
1. NEW: Roundtable discussion (1 hour: 1:30-2:30 Fri or Sat)
Participate in a small group discussion with others who work on similar projects. Each presenter will have 10 minutes to share their work, with the remaining time for feedback and synthesis. Roundtables are a great opportunity to get feedback on preliminary findings, new protocols, and instruments in first stages of development. Emphasis is on facilitating interaction, discussion, and critique. This is a new format requested by SABER member survey respondents. Please bear with us as we generate a format for these roundtable abstracts!
2. Poster presentation (90 minutes)
Organized by topic, poster presentations are ideal for sharing a new project or gaining specific advice on a particular set of data. Projects that are still early in development; include approaches with promising, yet minimal, outcomes data; or present negative, null, or inconclusive results are encouraged.
3. Short talks (20 minutes)
Short talks will showcase more developed ideas, projects, and work nearing publication. Emphasis is on communicating robust findings, tried and tested instruments and protocols, and more developed work.
4. Long talks (40 minutes)
Long talks are intended for projects that are complete or nearly complete and likely integrate multiple smaller projects.
Most work is suitable for a roundtable, poster, or a short talk; long talks are intended to synthesize big ideas and completed, high-profile projects in BER.
