Learning Objectives

The ICS is pleased to announce the sixth Early Career Professional Session at ICS 2018; the session will be for trainees, students and fellows of all disciplines.

We prepare a relaxed session with a combination of lectures and presentations which we think will be of great interest to those just starting their careers. Young ICS delegates can present their abstract in a mock podium style session where a group of expert panellists will provide invaluable, one to one feedback on presentation skills, slides and scientific content. We have an expert panel at the event including Chris Chapple, Margot Damaser, Elise De, Marcus Drake and Alan Wein.

Who is this session for?

The session is free and open to all disciplines, members and non-members regardless of whether you have had an abstract accepted. It’s a great way to get some practical tips and listen to valuable feedback which you can take forward for your next presentation or research. The ICS defines an "Early Career Professional" as someone who have graduated or completed their education in their speciality field within the last 5 years but anyone is welcome to join the session, young or old! You can apply to present your abstract to this session if you have had an Open Discussion ePoster accepted. To apply please contact Tracy.
