Call for Volunteer Judges
Where: University of Toronto, Chestnut Conference Centre
When: May 8, 2014

Who: IBBME faculty and post-doctoral fellows are required for volunteer judging for graduate student poster and podium presentations.
BESA’s Scientific Day Committee seeks volunteer judges for the IBBME Scientific Day 2014. IBBME’s Scientific Day is an annual conference showcasing research by IBBME students, as well as exciting talks by world-renowned scientists in the field of Biomedical Engineering.
This year, we are pleased to host Dr. Edward Boyden from the MIT Media Lab and Dr. Hai-Ling Margaret Cheng from SickKids as the keynote speakers. This is an excellent opportunity to for faculty and post-doctoral students to become familiar with IBBME research and to network with faculty and students. The participation of faculty and post-doctoral fellows is vital towards the complete and rounded assessment of student presentations for the following awards:
Best Poster (one per research theme group)
Best Oral Presentation
Best Proposal Poster
Four research themes will be represented in this conference: 1) engineering in a clinical setting, 2) nanotechnology, molecular imaging and systems biology, 3) neural, sensory systems and rehabilitation engineering and 4) biomaterials and tissue engineering. Judges will be responsible for reviewing and ranking 5-10 presentations in groups of 2-3 judges based on a provided assessment package.
Please join us in supporting research and engineering at the University of Toronto. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer judge, or would like additional information about this event, please contact Eric Ma at email@example.com.
