3rd Annual International Remote Conference Science and Society, January 27-28, 2018
Dear ICIS Member,
This announcement is being sent to you on behalf of the Beyond Sciences Initiative (BSI), founded at the University of Toronto (www.beyondsciences.org). BSI is a not-for-profit network that provides a platform for dialogue among scholars around the globe. BSI’s mandate is to foster academic and personal growth while empowering young scientific leaders to make lasting and influential change within their local and global communities. This is accomplished by:
• Bridging the gap in access to academic knowledge through mentorship and trainee exchanges
• Increasing cultural understanding among geographically separate communities
• Participation in outreach activities within local and international communities
Attached please attached find an announcement for the BSI 3rd. annual remote conference: Science & Society.
This online conference will take place on January 27 and 28, 2018. The intent is to have an accessible conference where international scholars will present their research to a broad audience. The conference will be broadcast live and last year we had over 165 sites from 37 different countries around the globe that participated. Conference topics include: global health, cancer, chronic diseases, biotechnology, bioinformatics.
Once registered (at no cost), participants join the live conference on the 2 days by just clicking on the links on the BSI website – a simple user-friendly platform that requires only a computer or hand-held android device and access to the internet. Presentations are selected from Abstracts submitted. Those not selected for oral presentations will be viewed as digital posters. Monetary prizes are awarded for the top oral and poster presentations.
I ask that you please circulate this announcement to all trainees – undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and medical trainees – at your institution. We invite their participation in this conference.
Abstract submission deadline: November 25, 2017
