Please review this page carefully as much of the information for participants has been updated to reflect the new format.

REGISTRATION FOR THE 2021 CSHRF MANITOBA VIRTUAL ORAL (POSTER) COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED

APPLICATION DEADLINE: March 22, 2021


STEPS TO REGISTER

1. Download the abstract submission form & IST Photography/Release Form

2. Cut and paste a copy of the abstract submission into the abstract submission form.

3. Complete the registration form and upload the completed abstract submission form and IST Photography Release Form.

4. Check your emails and our website frequently for updates, including speaker information, specific event registration and judging schedules.

Please see the following section for further information regarding preferred oral (poster) presentation formatting.

As the forum is taking place virtually this year, there have been a few modifications to our normal programming please review this page carefully for the description of these changes.

The oral (poster) competition will take place virtually using Blue Jeans. Please note, recorded presentations will be limited to 10 minutes. Although most participants will likely prefer to record their own presentations and submit their video files (Blue Jeans- detailed instructions will be provided) by the May 25th deadline, some presenters may prefer technical assistance from our IST personnel. As such, there will be two submission deadlines this year: for participants requiring IST assistance, a scheduled appointment will be arranged prior to May 10, 2021 (to allow IST time to properly edit and format the video), participants who wish to submit their own pre-recorded presentation will need to do so by May 25th.

This will allow our judging committee to review the presentations prior to the assigned judging time. Judging Q&A sessions will be assigned for June 15th in 10 minute time blocks via Blue Jeans. Participants should ensure prior to registration that they will be available on June 11th for their scheduled meeting with the judges.

Each participant will submit a 10 minute pre-recorded presentation of their 'poster'. Our IST Department has agreed to provide assistance to participants who would prefer assistance. Please indicate your preference for this at the time of registration. Once registration has closed, IST will contact participants who have expressed an interest in assistance in recording via email to schedule a recording appointment. Presentations requiring IST support will be recorded prior to May 10th. Participants who feel comfortable recording their own presentation for submission are welcome to do so, the submission deadline for these videos is May 25th.

The format of this presentation is ultimately up to each presenter but we request that presentations designed with PowerPoint (or slides of any kind) be limited to no more than 10 slides. Recorded presentations cannot exceed 10 minutes in duration. Submitted presentations that exceed 10 minutes will be judged on the first 10 minutes recorded only.

Given that there is a period of time between video submission and the judging session, participants will be provided with the URL link (once assigned) to their presentation for review prior to their judging time.

Please keep in mind, the judges are most likely not experts in your specific area of research. The topics covered in this competition are very broad and logistically it would be near impossible to provide close expertise. However, the judges have been selected based on their success as scientists in their respective fields and their broader knowledge of science. As with any presentation, the audience must be taken into account and the information delivered accordingly.

TIME FRAME
The judges will have reviewed each video presentation prior to their meeting (via Blue Jeans) with the presenter. Presenters should expect a discussion of approximately 5 minutes with the judges on June 11th at a pre-scheduled time (Judging Schedule to be posted on the website).
