RE:     April 18: Deadline for Submissions for UF Innovations for International Development Symposium


The International Center, IFAS International Programs, and the Emerging Pathogens Institute are pleased to be hosting the upcoming Innovations for International Development Symposium. The event, which will take place on May 2, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon in Reitz Union's Rion Ballroom, will be an exciting opportunity for members of the UF community to exchange information and ideas about technologies and innovations that can be used to advance solutions that can improve the lives of the poor in developing countries. The three broad topics we are focusing on are: Technology; Capacity building/Implementation; and Extension/Technology Transfer. If you would like an opportunity to present your work, please download and submit the Call for Abstracts form...

...by April 18, 2013 at 5 p.m. Submitted abstracts will be reviewed on April 19th by a committee, and you will be notified later that day of the committee's decision. If you are selected you will be advised of the format for your presentation (either a poster or a brief oral presentation) though you are invited to state your preference on the submission form.

The poster session is a great opportunity to present your technology, innovation or development approach, and also to hone your skills in displaying your work in this manner.  Additionally, this experience and networking opportunity could be of use to students who are planning on competing in one of the numerous national poster competitions, such as Emory University's International Global Health Case Competition...

...and Columbia University's International Conference on Sustainable Development Practice:

Individuals or teams that have already created posters are welcome to submit abstracts based on the same material and poster as long as it is relevant to the mini-symposium.  

You can navigate to the Call for Abstracts announcement and Submission Form by clicking on this link:

Please forward this on to colleagues and students that you feel might be interested in submitting an abstract or attending the event.
