In the wake of the outbreak of COVID-19, many of you have expressed concerns about travel restrictions and the impossibility to attend the conference in person. To circumvent this issue, we are adding a virtual technical program module to complement the NCSLI/CPEM 2020 in-person conference. Virtual sessions will be arranged by topic and each presentation will consist of a pre-recorded video uploaded by registered speakers. A text-based discussion forum will be available on the platform for questions and answers. All registered attendees will have access to the full virtual conference content for an extended period, after the conference.
Details about recording options and uploading instructions will be published soon on our conference website www.ncsli.org/aws In addition to the virtual presentation, speakers may request to present their paper in person at the conference venue (either oral or poster). 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 perhaps extend the participant base beyond the traditional NCSLI/CPEM attendees. The registration fee for the virtual module is $350 USD.
