Inclusive Science Conference

Call for Posters

General Information

We are excited to invite submissions for the closing conference of the EU-funded RESET – Redesigning Equality and Scientific Excellence Together. Under the theme “Inclusive Science: Redesigned Scientific Excellence for Sustainable Futures”, this conference aims to spotlight transformative research that promotes gender equality and diversity as central components of scientific excellence and sustainable future-making within European universities and beyond.

This conference provides a pivotal platform for sharing your research with an international audience and for engaging in meaningful discussions on the role of gender equality and diversity in shaping sustainable and inclusive scientific futures. It’s an exceptional opportunity for early-career researchers to gain visibility and connect with established scholars in the field. We also invite colleagues from Horizon Europe projects to share their tools, measures, output, and results related to gender mainstreaming.

Important Dates

Submission Deadline: 30.04.2024
Notification of Acceptance: 30.06.2024

Themes for Submission

Submissions should align with the overarching theme of the conference, illustrating how inclusive approaches to science and gender equality contribute to redesigned scientific excellence and sustainable futures. We encourage submissions on the following topics:

Intersectionality and Diversity in Gender Equality at HEIs:

Contributions can focus on showcasing how intersecting social categories have a systemic impact on inclusive science practices and contribute to sustainable and equitable futures in academia.

Advancing Scientific Excellence Through Gender Equality:

In which regard do understandings of scientific excellence interrelate with institutional strategies, policies, and measures to strengthen gender equality in science? We welcome contributions that answer these questions with examples, tools, and measures from research and gender equality work targeting science and academia.

Addressing Gender Bias and Stereotypes in the Scientific Community:

Does your research target strategies for creating more inclusive and bias-free scientific communities, contributing to excellence and sustainability? Share them with us in your poster contribution!

Leadership and Decision Making:

Despite the increasing proportion of women among students and doctoral candidates, the phenomenon of the “glass ceiling” remains a barrier to women’s careers in science. How can this be countered? What alternatives towards inclusive leadership models exist that can improve decision-making processes, foster scientific excellence, and support future sustainability, while also advancing equality and diversity?

Co-Designing Equal Opportunities:

Contributions about the collaborative and inclusive approaches to address gender inequality in research, innovation, and policy, aiming for sustainable scientific and societal outcomes.

Fostering Work-Life Balance in Academic Culture:

Care work is unequally distributed between genders, and the compatibility of family and work also poses a risk to the career progression of women in science. We invite contributions that address these challenges and offer innovative solutions to achieve work-life balance, which is crucial for inclusive, excellent, and sustainable scientific careers.

Submission Guidelines

We invite researchers to submit an abstract for a poster presentation that provides informative and inspiring insights into their work. Abstracts of approx. 500 words (3000 char.) should include:

  • A concise title that reflects the focus of the research.
  • Reference to relevant literature to contextualize the research within the broader field.
  • An overview of the research question or objective.
  • A brief description of the methodology.
  • Key findings or insights.
  • Implications for gender equality, scientific excellence, and sustainability.

Abstracts should be submitted in English and must articulate how the research contributes to the conference’s theme of gender equality and inclusive science for sustainable futures.

Abstract submission is implemented through Microsoft’s CMT platform. Use the abstract submission link to redirect to the platform and submit your abstract after registering (create an account) to Microsoft CMT. After submitting your work, all the abstract management and corresponding notifications will take place through the CMT platform and notification emails.

Abstracts will undergo a peer-reviewed process with successful applicants notified by 30.06.2024. Please note that all presenters are required to register (free of charge) for their attendance at the conference.
