The Annual oSTEM Conference is built on unforgettable moments where LGBTQ+ STEM professionals engage their whole self surrounded by a vibrant community of peers. In centering the safety and wellbeing of our members, we have decided to host our 11th Annual oSTEM Conference as a fully virtual event. We relish the opportunity to bring the wonder of an oSTEM conference to you, wherever you are!
We hope you were able to experience the wonders of oSTEM online last year, and eagerly invite you to join us this year at oSTEM 2021: "Your Seat at Our Table."
Share Your Research
Share a poster at our virtual poster session! This year, we will be using Gather to display posters to conference attendees, which will allow for a virtual engagement similar to an in-person poster session. Submissions are due by October 1st.
Give a talk at our research symposium! These talks will be ~15 minutes long: a 10 minute talk with 5 minutes of Q&A.
Defend your research in a fast-paced "three-minute thesis" showdown! There will be fun, science, prizes, and more!
