What time zone will sessions take place?
The conference schedule is currently still being discussed but it is anticipated that sessions will take place during morning and late afternoon/evening hours, U.S. Eastern Time.

What is the virtual conference platform?
The virtual conference will be held using the Whova platform. Whova will host all oral, plenary, and poster presentations, and will provide attendees with a way to communicate with other attendees. The virtual platform is browser based. If your computer is able to efficiently download and view media content such as videos on a browser, then your system is likely to be sufficient to allow you to attend the meeting. Closer to the conference, we will make available the Whova mobile app which would need to be downloaded.

Will there be an exhibit?
Yes, the Whova platform provides for virtual booths. Exhibitors will be able to upload a video, image or PDF files for collateral material. The platform allows for the exhibitors to easily engage with the conference attendees.

How do I get access to the CEC/ICMC’21 Whova platform?
Anyone attending and presenting at CEC/ICMC’21 must register. Only registered participants with a paid status will be given access to the platform. The platform is scheduled to be made live June 1, 2021. An email will be generated with your personal login credentials. Your login credentials will create a profile on the platform, with private messaging, private video calls, and other features that should not be shared. You should take precautions to protect your login credentials.

When do I have to submit my presentation?
All presentations must be uploaded ONE WEEK PRIOR to the start of the conference to allow for screening checks. Oral presenters will submit a pre-recording of the full presentation. Poster presenters will upload a PDF of their poster. Further oral and poster presentation instructions will be made available at a later date.
