We encourage all presenters to log in to the CIMVHR Virtual Forum platform before the Kickoff Event on September 29, 2021. Please complete your profile with your academic information. It will be linked to your presentation in the platform agenda, which all attendees will see. You will have the ability to add information so attendees can reach out and ask questions about your presentation or your area of research.


A run-through and tech check will take place on the dates outlined below. During this time be at the location where you will be on the day of your presentation. We will check your lighting, microphone, and do a quick run-through of the agenda with the moderator of your session. A calendar invite will be sent to you once the stream you will be presenting in has been identified.

 Before the day of the event, you will be sent a link to the Zoom room for presenters only. We ask that you log in to the Zoom room 30 minutes before the beginning of the event – 9:30 AM ET. We will do a final technical check with our producer during this time.

When the event goes live, we will ask all presenters to mute their microphones. The moderator will introduce you, and then your recorded presentation will appear. Following your presentation, please turn on your microphone and camera for your 5 minutes of Q&A. You will be live on camera with the moderator to answer questions.

Please do not have the Forum platform live stream open while you are in the Zoom room, as it will be delayed by 30 seconds. We want to ensure there is no feedback and you are focused on the Zoom room for timing.

Following your question period, you are welcome to leave Zoom, join the live stream, and answer any additional questions attendees may have in the chat room.
