COVID-19 Response: Update: June 23, 2020
Dear NCSLI Members / Non-Members,
Due to the inescapable state of affairs, the NCSLI/CPEM 2020 in-person Conference scheduled to take place from August 22 – August 28, at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center has been officially cancelled. This joint conference has been rescheduled to take place in July of 2024. To circumvent this issue in 2020, we have added a Virtual Technical Program module. All accepted speakers with oral or poster presentations from both NCSLI/CPEM are invited to participate in the Virtual Technical Program. The Speaker registration cost is CPEM $350 / NCSLI $200. The speaker registration deadline is July 15, 2020. The presentation upload deadline is August 17, 2020. 

The Virtual sessions will be arranged by topic and each presentation will consist of a pre-recorded video uploaded by registered speaker/author. A text-based discussion forum will be available on the platform for questions and answers. Details about recording options and uploading instructions will be published on this page soon. The registration fee for the virtual module is $350 USD. We hope that this price will make the conference attractive to all institutions and companies, and extend the participant base beyond the traditional NCSLI/CPEM attendees. All registered attendees will have access to the full Virtual Program content.
