Panel Presentation Submissions

Submit a Panel Presentation


The Conference will be held virtually on May 11-12, 2021. We hope you will not only attend but also contribute your depth of knowledge and expertise by submitting a panel presentation proposal. HCSRN 2021 will offer 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. You may submit a panel presentation with the topic of your choosing and create your own panel participants.
