Symposium Format

The 2021 CURO Symposium will be held online, via eLC, April 12 and 13, 2021. The Symposium will have both asynchronous and synchronous components.

Asynchronous component:
All students participating in the 2021 CURO Symposium will communicate their research through one of the following:
10 to 12-minute Asynchronous Recording (Voice PowerPoint, demonstration, Zoom lecture, etc.); or
Asynchronous Poster
All students will have to submit their asynchronous materials through the CURO Symposium eLC page by April 4, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. 
Synchronous component:
Students will have the option to give a Synchronous 3-minute presentation (plus 5 to 8 minutes questions and discussion), in addition to their asynchronous recording or poster. The synchronous component will be voluntary. After the Abstract submission deadline has passed, we will send all students a survey asking them if they want to present their research "live" to a remote audience. We ask all students to respond by March 15, 2021, whether their answer is yes or no, so we can plan accordingly. 
Students wanting to present will be given the opportunity to provide their availability schedule for the synchronous component of the Symposium on April 12 and 13.
