Panel Presentation Submission


The Conference was held virtually on May 11-12, 2021. We hope you were not only able to attend but also able to contribute your depth of knowledge and expertise by submitting a panel presentation proposal. HCSRN 2021 offered concurrent sessions for both panel presentations and oral abstracts. Panel presentations are designed to maximize value and to attract attendees from differing backgrounds. Panel topics may be scientific, methodological, operational, or anything else likely to draw a large, diverse audience. Each year individuals may submit a panel presentation with the topic of their choosing and create their own panel participants.


The abstract and panel presentation submission sites are now closed. Join our mailing list below to get alerts for the 2022 HCSRN Conference!
