Call for Abstracts-Twitter Conference

The Atlanta Pod of 500 Women Scientists invites graduate and early career female-identifying and non-binary scientists to present at the first annual Under the Peachtree Conference!

Abstract Submission Deadline: Sunday, September 12, 2021 (11:59 pm ET)

Twitter Conference Dates: October 21-22, 2021

The Atlanta 500 Women Scientists Pod invites Graduate and Early Career female identifying or non-binary scientists in the Atlanta metropolitan area to participate in our first annual Under the Peachtree Twitter Conference. This online conference will provide participants an opportunity to increase their digital profile and provide space for those who haven’t been able to attend in-person conferences over the last year to present their work. Presenters will be invited to present their work in an 8-12 tweet thread, for a 10 presentation with 10 minutes per presenter for audience questions (please see the Presenter Guide). Presentations can be original contributions or previously presented research (we welcome recycled posters – we’ll help you put it into Twitter conference format!). The presenting author must be a graduate or early career female identifying or non-binary scientist located in the Atlanta metropolitan area, co-authors do not need to be.

How does presenting at Under the Peachtree 2021 benefit ECR and graduate scientists?

  • Gain and practice skills in speaking to a broad audience

  • Receive training in using Twitter for science (we’re planning a pre-conference workshop for presenters in how best to use Twitter as a scientist!)

  • Engage in outreach in 2021

  •  Promote your research within your field and beyond!

To submit an abstract for consideration, please email your abstract (limit 250 words) and list of authors, with presenting author clearly identified, to with “Twitter Conference Abstract” in the subject line. Please direct any questions to Virginia Silvis and Meg Sosnowski at or @vsilvis_wx (Virginia) and @MegSosnowski (Meg) on Twitter.
