General Information: 

Format of Session: The Works in Progress session will use a small group discussion format, with authors grouped by interests, stages of their projects, methods, etc. Authors will bring copies of their abstract to share in the small group and prepare a brief 2-3 minute presentation of their work and key challenges or questions for next steps (no slides or posters will be presented in this forum). Senior faculty will moderate groups based on research challenge topic areas. The small groups will come back together for the final part of the session to share some lessons learned and action steps for moving forward. 

Purpose: This session is designed to provide a forum for trainees and early-career faculty (within 5 years of completing training) for feedback and discussion about common challenges faced in the early stages of research. It is not intended for discussion of completed research projects. This symposium is designed to allow participants to obtain and provide feedback in a facilitated discussion with peers about projects that are in the planning or early development stages. Discussions will be moderated by senior investigators with general expertise in the topic areas of discussion. Abstracts will be selected based on how they facilitate this type of discussion. 

Selection Process: Abstracts will be selected based on topic areas. Examples of topic areas include but are not limited to: 
  • Methods questions 
  • Research approach questions 
  • IRB questions 
  • Connecting with community
Presenter Requirements: Presenters must be available to present at the time and date assigned by the Program Committee. If your submission is accepted for presentation, ALL presenting authors are required to register to attend the live meeting at the standard rates.
