Frequently asked questions
I REGISTERED FOR THE APRIL CONFERENCE, HOW DO I TRANSFER MY REGISTRATION TO VIRTUAL?
All participants who registered for the April conference have been contacted by email with the option to:
- Transfer your registration to virtual participation. Participate in all sessions during the conference and review on-demand recordings for one year. The rate difference between your April registration and October registration fees will be refunded.
- Request a full refund.
If you registered for the April conference and have not received an email, please contact the CPHA Conference Department.
IS PUBLIC HEALTH 2020 VIRTUAL ACCREDITED?
We will seek accreditation from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Certificates will be issued upon request after completing the evaluation form following the conference.
DO PRESENTERS NEED TO REGISTER?
All presenters are required to register the virtual conference. We encourage presenters to register for the full conference but if presenters are unable to participate for all three days, discounted daily rates are available.
The presenter daily rate is $100 and grants access to the conference sessions and networking features on the day of your presentation, post-conference materials and the presentation gallery.
To register at the presenter daily rate, contact the CPHA Conference department.
WILL LIVE VIRTUAL SESSIONS BE RECORDED AND AVAILABLE POST-CONFERENCE?
All sessions presented live during the virtual conference will be recorded and made available to registered participants for one year post-conference. Presenters are encouraged to review their presentations for sensitive and confidential information before submission, as recordings will not be edited to remove this information.
WHY DO PRESENTATIONS NEED TO BE PRE-RECORDED IF THEY ARE PRESENTED LIVE DURING THE CONFERENCE?
We are asking for pre-recorded presentations to avoid real-time technical challenges. In an effort to provide as seamless of an event as possible, pre-recorded presentations will help prevent concurrent sessions from running over time.
All sessions will be managed by an AV technician. The technician will open and close the session, play pre-recorded presentations, administer live polls, and control when speakers are shown on the screen. In order to do this successfully, session leads will complete a template with session details and timing.
WHEN DO PRE-RECORDED PRESENTATIONS NEED TO BE SUBMITTED?
All presenting authors will receive instructions by email.
WHY AREN’T ORAL, POSTER, AND PROGRAM SHOWCASE PRESENTATIONS INCLUDED IN THE VIRTUAL CONFERENCE?
Due to the reduced presentation time, we are unable to accommodate live oral, program showcase, or poster presentations; instead, these abstracts will be presented in the Public Health 2020 Presentation Gallery. Accepted abstract authors have the option to produce a 10-minute pre-recorded video or narrated PowerPoint, with an optional PDF document, or Submit a PDF only – e.g. a Poster presentation.
