FIRN Women Conference, Friday 16 July 2021

Hybrid research workshop with Kai Li + flipped lightning discussant presentation session

This year, the conference will take a different format. The conference will open with a presentation by Professor Li (via zoom), followed by a short interview with FIRN’s VP Women. Session two will be lightning discussant presentations. Presentations will be approximately 10 minutes in duration and papers will be presented by discussants (not authors). Submitting authors therefore commit to presenting a paper written by another author. Session three is a mentoring session where each submitting author will meet with a senior faculty member from a FIRN institution (via zoom) to discuss her paper.
