Greetings SETACers,

The Laurentian and Prairie Northern Chapters of SETAC are excited to bring a new element to the annual conference via the Twitter research competition. Traditional poster presentations provide an excellent platform to talk in-depth about your research, answer questions, and build relationships with other researchers. The virtual nature of conferences over the past year have challenged these elements of scientific communication and networking. We want to re-engage these aspects of the traditional poster presentation using Twitter and provide students an opportunity to share their research and engage with a large audience.

Twitter is used by researchers around the world to share new publications, highlight new research findings, and create dialogue with other researchers and the general public. If you were thinking about jumping into the world of science communication, this may be a great opportunity to start building a Twitter following while sharing the exciting work that you are doing!

Not a student? Feel free to participate as well and share a new paper or the interesting research your lab group is doing!

Make sure to indicate interest in participating during registration. Already registered but still want to participate? Send us an email to let us know!

Happy Tweeting,
The Annual General Meeting Committee
