The ICS Education Committee are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the ICS 2016 Early Career Session.
The Early Career Session is a relaxed event with a combination of lectures and presentations which we think will be of great interest to those just starting their careers. Young ICS members will present lectures relating to research which will be followed by mock-podium style presentations from those with open-discussion eposters who then receive feedback on their presentation skills, slides and scientific content.
We have an expert panel at the event including Alan Wein (Urologist), Matthias Oelke (Urologist), Kari Bø (Physiotherapist), Holly Richter (Urogynaecologist) and Rufus Cartwright (Urogynaecologist.) We will also have a Keynote lecture by Chris Chapple on "Communication skills for academic progress". A preliminary programme can be found below.
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. Its 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.
How to submit a paper for this session
If your abstract has been accepted as an open-discussion ePoster then please e-mail Tracy at the office Tracy@ics.org by 1 July 2016 advising us of your abstract tracking number. All received abstracts will then be re-selected for presentation. If your abstract is re-selected you will be asked to present for 7 minutes which will be followed by 5 minutes of feedback.
