ISEE student and new researcher's network abstract review program

This program is in its third year and provides less experienced abstract submitters the opportunity to receive feedback from experienced researchers before submitting their abstract to the ISEE 2017 conference. Feedback can relate to the formal requirements of abstract submission, as well as the quality, interpretation and presentation of the research reported. Ultimately, we hope this Program will help students, young researchers and those with less experience increase their chances of having an abstract accepted for ISEE 2017.

Applicants who wish to take part in this program and receive feedback before submitting their abstract to the ISEE 2017 conference should email their abstract to abstract.review.isee@gmail.com by the 9 March 2017. Applicants will be paired with a more experienced researcher from the ISEE Student and New Researchers Network (SNRN). Together, this pair can work on improving the quality of the abstract before submission to ISEE 2017. The Abstract Review Program is completely independent of the abstract review and selection process for the ISEE conference.
