Science & Society

Science & Society is an online conference that provides scholars worldwide an opportunity to present their research and network with a broad scientific audience. The 2021 conference held last year attracted participants from 100+ countries, and presentations garnered thousands of views.

Presenters and attendees simply connect to the live broadcast conference using a link that will be distributed to registered participants. Attending the conference does not require submitting an Abstract. Moreover, attendance is completely FREE of charge, and participation only requires that you have a stable internet connection as well as a computer or mobile device.

Interested trainees are invited to Submit an Abstract related to the topics indicated for either oral or poster presentation. Topics span from basic/fundamental research to translated work and population health. We are currently accepting Abstracts for the following types of presentations:

  • Oral
  • Poster
  • Pre-Recorded Video
  • Hot-Doc

examples of which can be found on last year’s Conference Page.
