ISBRA-WHO Workshops

ISBRA-WHO capacity building workshops for young professionals*

Several ISBRA-WHO sponsored workshops will be held as a part of the ISBRA meeting program in Kyoto. The purpose of these workshops is to build the research, clinical and public health competence of young professionals, especially those from less resourced countries. The workshop program will consist of six sessions. Each 90-minute session will deal with one topic (see below). A facilitator (senior investigator in the field of that session’s research topic) will chair and facilitate the session. The facilitator may make a presentation on the topic assigned to each session to provide the participants with basic information and/or review the topic. The facilitator can also invite another senior researcher to make an additional presentation on the topic.

* Young professionals: Those who are under 45 year-old at the time of the Congress or students who have valid student’s ID.

ISBRA-WHO workshops are designed primarily for young professionals, but are open to all ISBRA meeting participants with registration priority given to young professionals, particularly from less resourced countries.

  • We encourage young professionals who are interested in participating in the workshops to prepare and submit an abstract for one of the first 5 workshops listed-below; an abstract is not required for Workshop 6.
  • Two high quality abstracts will be selected by the local organizing committee, in consultation with WHO, for presentation in that workshop.
  • The authors of selected abstracts will be given an opportunity to present their work at the relevant workshops.
  • Travel reimbursement (up to USD 1,500) will be awarded to participants whose abstracts are selected for oral presentations at the workshops. Ten travel awards will be granted.
  • Participants are allowed to submit a maximum of one abstract for each of the 5 sessions.

Call for Abstracts

CLOSE. Thank you for your submission.

Abstracts not selected for oral presentation can be presented as a poster, provided the submitted abstract meets the necessary requirements for a poster presentation.

Please note that this award is different from the ISBRA young investigator award (YIA). We encourage poster presentation of abstracts that are not chosen for oral presentations. These posters will be presented at a designated area in the poster presentation site.

Participants who wish to participate in the ISBRA-WHO workshops will need to register prior to the event; this registration is separate from the general registration for the ISBRA meeting. Registration for the workshop should be completed at the time of abstract submission. The deadline for submission of abstracts is Thursday, May 10, 2018.

It is also possible to register to and participate in the ISBRA-WHO workshops without submitting an abstract. Ideally, those who register for any of the ISBRA-WHO workshops will participate in all six workshops. However, this is not obligatory.

A certificate of attendance will be provided to those who attended at least 3 ISBRA-WHO workshops.
