Research Snapshots

The ICRA Research Snapshots

This section of the website provides an opportunity for ICRA participants to present some of their current research. The Research Snapshots are short texts that highlight one piece of research in the same way a 20 minute ICRA parallel session would. Registered participants are invited to submit their Research Snapshot by following the instructions below. Once approved, the texts will be displayed as forum posts, allowing for comments, questions and further discussions by the community.

Six of the Research Snapshots will be selected and their authors will be invited to deliver 30-minute talks. These ICRA-talks will be hosted by the FD Seminar, and will take place on the three Thursdays during ICRA.

Research Snapshot should be no longer than the equivalent of an A4 page. For your Research Snapshot to be considered for a 30-minute talk, please submit before November 1st, 2020.

Instructions for submission

To submit a Research Snapshot you must register for the ICRA 2020. You will then be able to enter the #research-snapshots category and upload a snapshot by clicking on the plus-sign in the bottom right-hand corner to start a new topic.

In the text box that says Type your heading here, please enter your name and the title of your submission in the following format:

Last name, First name - Title of the Research Snapshot

You may then insert your text and a preview of your post will appear on the right hand side of your screen. Once submitted, the Research Snapshot will need to be approved by the ICRA organisers before appearing publicly.

Using LaTeX in your Research Snapshot
It is possible to include mathematical symbols in your Research Snapshot by writing LaTeX code directly into the text. To format text (bold, italics, links, lists) please use the toolbar above the text box.

Wrapping text with the $ symbol as usual will display maths inline. For example, $\operatorname{Ext}^1_A(M, N) = 0$ will produce \operatorname{Ext}^1_A(M, N) = 0 .

Wrapping text with the symbol $$ on their own line will produced displayed equations. For example,

\operatorname{Ext}^1_A(M, N) = 0

will display the mathematical text as follows:

\operatorname{Ext}^1_A(M, N) = 0

Making citations in your Research Snapshot
To cite academic papers in your text, please use the format [Authors’SurnamesYEAR] and use the “Hyperlink” option in the toolbar to create a link to the website of the relevant journal entry/MathSciNet review/arXiv article, e.g. [AuslanderReiten1975].

Using diagrams in your Research Snapshot
If you wish to include small diagrams (e.g. quivers) in your Research Snapshot, then please create a jpeg, jpg or png file and insert the image using the “Upload” option in the toolbar, e.g.

One way to create a jpeg, jpg or png file from a latex document is to take a screenshot of the relevant part of your screen using the snipping tool (windows) or the screenshot tool (mac).
