Mentor Program

With in-person connections impossible, it becomes even more critical to find ways to connect our early career researchers to the rest of the international community. For this reason we will be running the mentoring program in a virtual format. Designed for novice conference attendees, students, and early career scientists, mentees will be matched with an experienced scientist to help them navigate the conference content. All applications to join the program should be made by May 21st 2020 to allow matching and pre-conference contacts. Delegates apply by opting-in during the registration process. If you are already registered you can add an application via the My Purchases, Add more items for... button. You must be registered and paid for the conference to be accepted into the program.

Mentors should be able to do the following:

  • Contact your mentee(s) at least one week before the meeting
  • Discuss any objectives of the meeting, for example: sharing science, virtual networking, or career opportunities
  • Introduce your mentee virtually to at least 5 colleagues
  • Meet your mentee again later in the week, as necessary, to answer any questions or reflect on science sessions
  • Recommend up to 10 abstracts/presentations your mentee could find valuable
  • Review the abstract, presentation and Q&A participation of your mentee and provide useful feedback where applicable

Mentees should be able to do the following:

  • Contact your mentor at least one week before the meeting
  • Discuss any objectives of the meeting, for example: sharing science, networking, or career opportunities
  • Read and view the recommended abstracts and presentations and attend (where possible) the relevant Q&A times
  • Go to your mentor with any questions or reflections on science sessions
