Among the opportunities for researchers at the 2017 ASHA Convention are the Research Roundtables and two research symposia. The events are open to all convention attendees with no separate registration fees required.
Research Roundtables
Friday, Nov. 10, 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m.
Early-career and experienced researchers network and discuss research career topics at the 20th annual Research Roundtables. Discussions focus on topics related to starting, maintaining and advancing research careers. This includes pursuing a PhD, securing research funding, scaling-up your research, and more. Funded investigators and funding agency staff facilitate the discussions.
Research Symposium in Hearing Science
Friday, Nov. 10, 8–10 a.m., 10:30–11:30 a.m.
Hidden hearing loss is the focus of this symposium, organized by Ravi Krishnan (Purdue University), who is the 2017 Convention hearing and balance science topic chair. Speakers include Sharon Kujawa (Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts Eye and Ear), Hari Bharadwaj (Purdue University) and Qian-Jie Fu (University of California-Los Angeles).
Research Symposium in Autism
Saturday, Nov. 11, 8 a.m.–6 p.m.
Most children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience significant delays in reaching language milestones, and some fail to acquire spoken language even with early intervention. The 27th annual research symposium, “Advances in Autism Research: From Learning Mechanisms to Novel Interventions,” brings together leading researchers to present on early identification, mechanisms underlying language deficits, nonverbal communication and innovative treatments in ASD. The symposium is coordinated by Helen Tager-Flusberg (Boston University). Speakers include Sudha Arunachalam (Boston University), Jana Iverson (University of Pittsburgh), Connie Kasari (University of California-Los Angeles), Letitia Naigles (University of Connecticut), and Susan Ellis Weismer (University of Wisconsin-Madison).
Research Career Development
The convention will feature several research career development sessions coordinated by ASHA’s Research and Scientific Affairs Committee. Check out the list online or contact research@asha.org for more information.
