Among the opportunities for researchers at the 2013 ASHA Convention are Research Roundtables and the Research Symposium. Both events are open to all convention attendees; no separate tickets are required.
Research Roundtables (Fri., Nov. 15, 11:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m., McCormick Place S504). ASHA invites early-career and experienced researchers to network and discuss research career topics at the 16th annual Research Roundtables. Researchers—including students interested in research careers, post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty—can meet and learn from experienced researchers and funding agency staff. Well-established researchers will lead discussions on topics related to starting, maintaining and managing research careers. Researchers at all career stages will find topics of interest, ranging from pursuing a PhD, to securing research funding, to structuring a sabbatical. Discussions on funding will be led by funded investigators and funding agency staff.
Research Symposium (Sat., Nov. 16, 8 a.m.–6 p.m.). Experts from a variety of disciplines will present their research on "The Genetic Basis of Speech, Language, Reading, Learning, and Memory." The symposium features
four sessions with opportunities for discussion among clinicians and investigators. The symposium, now in its 23rd year, is sponsored by a grant from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. Convention attendees are welcome to attend all or some of the symposium sessions.
A list of additional convention sessions focused on research career development is available. For more information, contact research@asha.org.
