The Scottish Alcohol Research Network (SARN), in collaboration with Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP), will be holding a Postgraduate and Early Career Researcher symposium on 18th of April 2016 at the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh.
The symposium will be a chance for students and early career researchers, with an interest in alcohol research, from across Scottish institutes, to come together and present their research. The overall aim of the Symposium is to build on and strengthen the PhD and Early Career Researchers community which is of great importance to both SARN and SHAAP.
The day will consist of a number of short presentations made by researchers who are at varying time-points within the academic journey, as well as a number of round table discussions. This is a fantastic opportunity to not only network with your peers but it also provides the opportunity to present and get feedback on your research, and discuss future research ideas.
Abstracts are invited for oral presentations from postgraduate, PhD or post-doctoral researchers, exploring alcohol related issues from all disciplinary backgrounds and perspectives. Oral presentations will be 10 minutes, with 5 minutes for questions. We also welcome all delegates to submit a poster, which will be displayed during the event. Moreover, there will be opportunities throughout the day to record a SARN Bite which will be displayed on our website. Decisions regarding successful presentations will be announced in March 2016.
