Call for Webinar Proposals
Deadline for Fall 2020 Webinars is April 1
MISSION OF PROPOSED WEBINAR SERIES
The purpose of the SAVIR webinars is to improve the scope and quality of injury control research by providing a regular forum for increasing interaction and skills among key injury stakeholders: researchers, trainees, organizations (e.g. ICRCs, NCIPC, SAVIR, Safe States, etc.), and practitioners. The webinars will showcase injury and violence research in order to:
- Increase attention to injury issues among those new to the field
- Exchange methods and approaches
- Disseminate and discuss research findings
TOPICS AND CRITERIA FOR SELECTION
We welcome presentations on any injury topics, special populations, methodological issues, policy dilemmas, etc. We are especially interested in presentations that showcase collaborations among centers, across disciplines, and between researchers and practitioners. Single or multiple presenters will be accepted. While presenters are not required to be SAVIR members, presenters will be encouraged to become members and priority will be given to SAVIR members. Webinars are typically one hour in length, but we will entertain webinars that may be shorter or longer in length.
PROPOSAL FORMAT and DEADLINE
We will offer 3 to 4 webinars in 2020. You may submit your application anytime, but please note the submission due dates for each webinar.
