Information for attendees

For this year's Symposium, we will have different presenters on each day. View the Presentation schedule web page for session details.

The start times alter between morning presentation sessions (May 3 starting at 9 am), and afternoon presentation sessions (May 4 starting at 1 pm). Presentation sessions will only be streamed on their scheduled day. If you miss a day, unfortunately these sessions will not be archived for future viewing.

How to register for the Spring Research Symposium

To attend the 38th Spring Research Symposium, no formal registration is required—one click and you can join us online as sessions will be streamed via YouTube. A viewing link for the presentations will be provided closer to the Symposium date. Check back for the link, or join our email list to be informed:

While registration is not required, there are two ways for Symposium attendees to connect with our session presenters:

  1. View the streamed session on YouTube
  2. Register on Eventbrite to connect with the presenters for the question and answer session via Zoom chat.

Register for the question and answer sessions

To allow virtual Symposium attendees to connect with our presenters, immediately following the conclusion of each presentation, time will be allotted at the end for attendees to submit their questions via a modified chat in Zoom. Pre-registration is required for these sessions via EventBrite to participate in the question and answer session via modified chat.

The audience questions and answer session will be simultaneously streamed live on YouTube, but viewers will not be able to pose questions to the presenters.

Whether you choose to ask question in one session, or all three session, you will need to register on Eventbrite for one or both days of the Symposium.

Joining the Zoom chats

Note: Zoom registration for May 3–4 is now closed. 

Lunch and break options

We will not be meeting in person for this year's 38th Annual Spring Research Symposium due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but we look forward to seeing you in person next year.

Join us online for this year's event.

Lunch and break options

For those interested, lunch will be available for a small fee. Indicate your food preference on the registration form. Payment options include cash or cheque, which can be made in advance (send in payment with your registration) or you can pay on the day of the symposium.

Alternatively, symposium attendees can bring their own food or find other food alternatives on the Bannatyne Campus.

    Sustainability initiatives at the University of Manitoba

    Did you know that the University of Manitoba has a commitment to sustainability?
    As a symposium attendee, you can help in a number of ways:

    • Bring your reusable water bottle from home. Several water bottle fill stations can be found in and around the presentation theatres:
      • Main floor of the Brodie Centre by the Answers booth and ATM
      • Second floor by Theatre B in the Basic Medical Sciences Building
    • Recycle your symposium program at the end of the day. Look for the blue recycling bins around campus.
