How do I register for the conference?

I see that there are two registration options – general and presenter. Which should I pick?

If you are the lead or only presenter of a poster or paper, please register as “presenter”. If you are not planning to be a lead or sole presenter of a poster or paper, please register as “general”. 


Will I receive confirmation of my registration? 

Yes, once you have completed your registration, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. 


I plan on presenting multiple papers and/or posters. Do I need to register separately for each presentation?

No. In instances where you are the primary or only author for multiple presentations, register for one of the presentations. Then send an e-mail to The e-mail should include the following items:

(1) that you have registered;

(2) that you will be the primary or only author for multiple presentations; and

(3) the title, abstract (less than 200 words per presentation), three key words, co-authors, and whether each presentation is part of an existing session for each additional presentation. 


I understand that the conference will be entirely online this year. Do I need to access the conference via app, webpage, or something else?

This year’s event will be hosted on the Socio platform. Socio can be accessed by both webpage and app. As of March 2021, the conference platform is still under construction. Once the platform has been completed, all registered attendees will receive an e-mail with a link to the conference event.
