We are seeking proposals for presentations, posters, and 100 word rants. Please review the categories to decide which presentation type is best for you: Talk, Poster, or 100 Word Rant!
Talks and posters should focus on challenges, solutions and best practices that are of interest and applicability to practitioners (researchers, program developers and managers, and participants), and should fit one of the following themes:
· Adapting existing programs to virtual platforms
· Incorporating community science into on-line education
· Community science programs in the era of social distancing
· Inclusivity, equitability and social justice considerations in community science
· The fundamentals of CS programs, from protocols to management of personnel
· Project highlight (poster only)
· No theme (rant only)
Talks will be scheduled for 15 minutes (10 minutes to present & 5 minutes for questions). Limit abstract to 200 words.
Poster Presentations will be part of the video conference (poster presenters will share 1 slide and have 5 minutes to summarize their topic and answer questions). Posters may highlight the success (or otherwise) of your community science program or focus on any aspect of community science you’d like to share relevant to the themes.
100 Word "Rants" Do you have strong feelings about a topic related to community science, a great idea, a question to ask, or a frustration to share? Consider a 100 word rant! We will post all (appropriate) rants on the website and use them as bases for conversation. These rants do not need to follow one of the presentation themes. The rants should be submitted, in their entirety, into the proposal submission form (less than 100 words).
Submissions will be accepted through 11:59 PM MST on October 1st, 2020. Proposals must be submitted through the online system included on this page. Abstracts are required for all presentation types.
After submission, abstracts will be reviewed and authors will be notified of decisions by early November 2020. Abstracts will be reviewed for clarity and relevance. The topic and take home message should be obvious for all abstracts. All proposals will be reviewed and ranked by the Rocky Mountain Conference program committee.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Conference Coordinator: Mason Lee via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (307) 766-6240.
