This year's conference will be entirely virtual, and will use two web conferencing tools. All conference activities except the poster session will use Zoom webinars and meetings.
Aside from our invited speakers, we will select a number of presenters from the abstract pool to give short Spotlights (n=3, 8 minutes each) and Data Blitz talks (n=8, 3 minutes each).
Research pitches will feature invited CBI affiliates and colleagues from partner institutions to present ideas for new lines of interdisciplinary research and collaborative projects.
The poster session will use Gather, an interactive platform that combines video conferencing, file sharing for PDF posters and discussion socials, and 8-bit gaming. We hope to make this a fun and immersive experience. Through this set up, posters will be live judged, and discussion sessions can be held ad-hoc in a variety of locations.
Links will be uploaded and distributed closer to the conference.
