All registration will be done online. Details to follow.

Oral Presentations

Oral presentations will be in 20 minute time slots (unless you have been advised differently). These should be prepared as PowerPoint presentations – we strongly recommend you provide them in .pps or .ppsx (PowerPoint Show) format, to ensure that symbols and graphics transfer appropriately. To make a .pps file, use ‘Save As’ and select the PowerPoint Show (pps or ppsx) mode. Note that you cannot edit a .pps file. Time slots are 20 minutes – presentations should be tailored to 15 minutes, allowing 5 minutes for questions and change over.

Poster Boards

Posters will be centrally located in the main convention hall of the Halifax Convention Centre. Posters will be set up for the duration of the conference.


The program will be published in March 2022. If your organization requires meeting space and time in the schedule, please contact Lynn Dafoe, General Secretary.
