Student Mentorship Program
During the symposium, there will be a student mentorship program, where students can meet with an established researcher in a similar field who will help to get them acquainted with the symposium and the attendees. The program will pair a subset of student attendees with more experienced attendees for an in-person mentoring experience. Would you like to be a part of the early career-mentoring program?
