Presentations & Mentoring
Present your work, get mentoring and network with other young professionals and experts in your field around the world!
30 November - 2 December 2021. Online
The IAHR technical committee on Education and Professional Development is organizing the first virtual congress for young professionals. The aim is to give you the opportunity to present your work and get feedback from mentors.
The congress is a wonderful opportunity to present your work and get mentoring from leading experts.
It represents a unique opportunity for networking as well; you will be invited to meet and interact with your peers and mentors through breakout sessions.
This is also the chance to make your work known; all the proceedings will be published and made available in the IAHR e-library after the congress.
Young professionals will present their work by submitting an extended 2-page abstract for review by the International Scientific Committee. Once accepted, your abstract will be assigned to one of the sessions chaired by the IAHR technical committees, and on the date of the event it will need to be supported by a one-page poster and a 3- to 5-minute presentation. Young professionals will receive feedback from mentors on their work and will be invited to join the break sessions so they can meet with their peers as well as the leaders of the IAHR technical committees.
