Virtual Symposium on Research
The Virtual Symposium on Research provides a venue for radiologic technologists and radiation therapists to showcase their original research online. This program offers a great opportunity for beginning and experienced researchers alike to share their work with others in the radiologic science community. Whether you work in the clinic or teach others how to be a great technologist, you have expertise and information that could benefit the community!
Poster submissions are judged according to standard scientific poster evaluation criteria, and one researcher in each category will be invited to speak about their research during a live webinar in the fall of 2013. All submissions should be based on original research and must not have been presented or published elsewhere.
The posters and recorded webinar presentations from the 2012 Virtual Symposium on Research are now available. You also can view the abstracts, posters and webinars from the 2011 Virtual Symposium on Research and the 2010 Virtual Symposium on Research to find out more about our previous year's awardees.
Application ProcessThe Research and Grants Advisory Panel evaluates submissions and selects the best posters to be displayed online and evaluated for an invitation to present during the live webinar. We expect to hold the next webinar during the early fall of 2013; however, all presentations will be archived online.
Please complete the Virtual Symposium on Research application and submit it along with your finished poster by April 1, 2013. You will be notified if your poster is selected to showcase on our website.
Submission GuidelinesApplications are accepted from three categories of researchers: novice (no previously published research), advancing (one to three prior publications) and established (four or more prior publications).
