Need More Help?
Sometimes novice and other authors may have difficulty assimilating ideas into the abstract/poster format. WOCN will connect those who may desire some support by connecting them with seasoned abstract/poster authors to review the abstract/poster content in progres or to answer questions. If interested in this opportunity, please send an email to email@example.com to be indicate what area in which you are seeking assistance: 1) development of content, 2) turning content into a poster, 3) distilling the story, or 4) something else. Kindly note: Taking advantage of any mentoring opportunity does not guarantee abstract acceptance of any work for the WOCNext 2021 abstract program.
