Call for Judges

We are looking for volunteers to judge the flash talk poster and short platform presentations at this meeting. Suitable candidates are post-training MS or PhDs.

To make judging easier and more streamlined, presentations will be pre-recorded and posted for evaluation the week before the meeting, and judges will only need to score the live Q&A portion of each presentation during the meeting. Based on previous meetings, judges can expect to evaluate 8–12 presentations.

If you are interested in volunteering, or have any questions, please contact Giselle Sanchez Guerrero ( by Wednesday, September 23, 2022. Additional information will be provided following judge selection.
