Because of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Canada and Quebec governments have put in place several temporary measures to limit the propagation including the interdiction to held events and the closing of the national borders. Thus, the conference planned in June 2020 is POSTPONED to May 11-14 2021 in virtual mode.
The Local Organizing Committee developed a continuity plan about submitted abstracts and registrations.
Our general program will remain fairly unchanged. Visit our web site to know the current status.
See updated IMPORTANT DATES and DEADLINES.
Authors and Presenters
If you are an author and you already submitted an abstract, it will remain in our system and will be considered for the technical program. As we go virtual, the management of submissions and pre-recorded presentation was entrusted to Conférium, a local company specialized in the organization of virtual scientific conferences. You will receive more information in March 2021 by email on how to move your submission to their system.
Please follow the Virtual Conference Presentation Guidelines to transfert your contribution to the new system and to learn how to prepare your pre-recorded presentation.
If you already register to the conference, your registration will remain in our system and will be valid for the postponed event in May 2021. If the registration fee changes, the difference will be refunded. No fee will be charged if there is an increase. We will contact you personnaly in March 2021.
Note that cancelling your meeting registration does not cancel your hotel reservation; you must cancel directly with the hotel.
