Lightning Talk Format - Deadline: Thursday, June 16, 2022 11:59 p.m. PT
Lightning talks offer early career researchers the opportunity to have the stage to themselves for ten minutes (one speaker only per submission).
Workshops - Deadline: Monday, July 25, 2022 11:59 p.m. PT
Workshops should be aimed at individuals seeking careers in science and engineering and professionals looking to sharpen or supplement their skills.
