You are invited to submit an abstract for an oral presentation, rapid fire poster presentation and workshop at the 2014 CDPAC Pan-Canadian Symposium. Submit your abstract here!

The online process will collect contact information for the presenter, sources of funding and whether the submission represents a student project. Abstracts accepted may be presented in one of the forms outlined below.

    Rapid Fire Poster Presentation (New!)
    In an effort to bring more attention to posters at the conference, CDPAC is introducing Rapid Fire Poster Presentations. Rather than the more traditional poster presentation session, numerous presenters will have their “poster” put up on the screen and be given 3 minutes to provide an overview of their work to the conference participants. Following the session, at scheduled times throughout the conference, there will be an opportunity for participants to interact with the poster presenters and allow for Q&A in various rooms with their “poster” on the screen. No printed posters will be required.

    Workshops (New!)
    Workshops will focus on a more collaborative approach to the session, where the participants will walk away with new tools and learnings related to the theme being presented. Workshops will be a half or full day session and will run either on the pre-conference day (Tuesday, April 8, 2014) or concurrently during the various concurrent sessions in the program.
