The Student Research Conference of the Third Faculty of Medicine, Charles University will take place on Tuesday, May 24, 2022. Traditionally, it will consist of lecture and poster sections. An independent expert commission will decide on the division of contributions into sections. 

The postgraduate section will again take place completely in English, so it is necessary to write an abstract in English. If you will be participating in another section than the postgraduate section and you will be interested in presenting your work in English, you must also upload your abstract in English.

 

The system for inserting abstracts will open on March 1, 2022 on the SRC website (svk.lf3.cuni.cz). In order to be able to divide the contributions into individual sections, no contributions will be accepted after the deadline for the submission of the abstract, which is set for April 10, 2022. 

Whoever does not submit the abstract by this deadline, will not be allowed to participate in SRC 2021 and will therefore not receive credit for enrolled SVA! 

The actual text of the abstract must not exceed 2500 characters, including spaces, to fit on 1 page of the proceedings. It is possible to add a maximum of one attachment (graph, table, picture, etc.) to the text. Please note that the abstract must be submitted via the electronic form on this page, abstracts in text form sent by email will not be accepted.

When submitting an abstract in the electronic form, the author chooses a section (theoretical, clinical, postgraduate, bachelor's). Doctoral students always choose a postgraduate section without distinction between clinical and theoretical. Furthermore, the author can, but does not have to, choose the form of presentation he prefers (lecture or poster). However, the final division will be decided by a commission composed of experienced researchers from our faculty. If there are several authors on one work, the abstract is always submitted by only one student and the other collaborating colleagues are listed as co-researchers. After sending the abstract, all authors will receive a confirmation email. Even after submitting the abstract, it is possible to edit the text, up to the deadline, which is set for April 10, 2022. Please fill in the form on a computer, not on a tablet (it may not work well).

The zone of protection is the minimal area around the logo where it is not possible to place anything else. This area may differ in different logos, however, you can always find it in the logo handbooks of individual organizations and institutions.

When creating the poster you can use one of the poster templates which already contain the posterbanner:

Adobe InDesign

Recommended software for creating the poster:

● Microsoft Powerpoint(in older versions there could be a problem with bigger resolutions)

Export in 300 DPI
● file - print - printer properties - layout - advanced - graphic quality - 300 DPI - OK
● as a printer select Adobe pdf
