There will be two ways that members can gain assistance with writing abstracts.
Members of the abstract committee will be holding a 1 hour training session via zoom on Monday, January 23rd at 3pm EST, 2pm CST, 1pm MST, noon PST (Abstract Training Session Link). This session will be recorded. However, there will be group work which will not be captured on the recording. So that we can get an idea of number of participants, please sign up if you are planning to attend here: Signup for Abstract Training Session.
The mentoring committee is inviting SABERites to participate in an initiative to increase participation and representation in the short talks at the annual meeting. By providing opportunities for SABERites to get mentoring on their abstracts prior to submission, we hope to see many more deserving folks presenting their research in the form of short talks at SABER. So, please indicate your desire to become involved with mentoring specifically for submission of an abstract for SABER 2023. Please use the Abstract Mentoring Form to let us know whether you want some mentoring prior to abstract submission, or if you're willing to serve as a mentor for someone else by January 25. Please keep in mind the following guidelines:
Mentoring is only for those submitting abstracts for short talks.
Ideally, if you're volunteering to be a mentor, we request that you have at least one accepted abstract for a SABER short talk previously.
Mentees reach out to their respective mentors and provide them with a near-final, complete draft of their abstract.
Mentors will provide feedback and suggestions to the mentees in the mutually agreed upon timeframe prior to abstract submission.
Thank you all in advance for your participation, and for helping make SABER a more inclusive space.
