Hello FUN colleagues,

It is the final week for students to submit a presentation to the FUN Neuroscience Undergraduate Research Virtual Symposium (NURVS<https://nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.funfaculty.org%2Fnurvs&data=01%7C01%7Crjbayline%40washjeff.edu%7C1d318e01499e45db6c7d08d8654d9e42%7C00758a75d55f4737a49c29f42e96b59b%7C0&sdata=Nxr%2FLDtz8XnLnnw2EbLYhRH1xRDkXogsZT2qogenGcQ%3D&reserved=0>), a virtual symposium that will occur on Sunday, October 25th starting at 2 PM Eastern Time using the Zoom videoconferencing platform.  The deadline for submissions is Saturday, October 10 at 8 PM EDT. Details of the submission process are listed below.

Any students who performed work as an undergraduate over the past year (since the last meeting) are eligible to present their work, even if they are no longer undergraduate students.  We will have a registration site for all to attend the meeting, along with Zoom links to the meeting, posted soon.

Symposium Date:  Sunday, October 25, 2020 starting at 2 PM Eastern Time

Symposium Format:  Two-hour virtual sessions that focus on research across subfields of Neuroscience will occur concurrently throughout the symposium.  Each presentation will be allotted 15 minutes for a total of eight presentations in each 2-hour session.  During each session, the host will present a prerecorded video (7-8 min in length) that is immediately followed by a live audience-generated question and answer session (6-7 min in length).  This blended presentation format was selected to minimize technical difficulties while also providing undergraduate presenters with the opportunity to interact with a live audience.  Audience members are encouraged to use the Chat function in Zoom to submit their questions to the session host.  To ensure lively and successful sessions, it is anticipated that each presenter will attend their 2-hour session in its entirety.  We seek FUN members to volunteer as session hosts.

Presentation Format: Submit an abstract (300-word maximum) and a 7 to 8-minute pre-recorded video (mp4 or avi format) of your research.

Abstract and video submission window: September 13, 2020 - October 10, 2020 (8pm ET).  Please see the FUN Neuroscience Undergraduate Research Virtual Symposium (NURVS<https://nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.funfaculty.org%2Fnurvs&data=01%7C01%7Crjbayline%40washjeff.edu%7C1d318e01499e45db6c7d08d8654d9e42%7C00758a75d55f4737a49c29f42e96b59b%7C0&sdata=Nxr%2FLDtz8XnLnnw2EbLYhRH1xRDkXogsZT2qogenGcQ%3D&reserved=0>) page for details.
