doctoral symposium Abstract submission

The GNLC is delighted to invite you to submit abstracts for poster or podium presentations at the Doctoral Symposium. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to take advantage of a collegial learning environment to practice your skills. To that end, abstracts will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, as long as they are in the appropriate format and we have representation from a variety of schools and program types. Please follow instructions carefully.

Posters are automatically part of a contest and winners will be announced at the close of the day.
