In an effort to ensure that our audience is getting the information that is most appropriate for them, all speakers will be asked to identify a target audience for their panel:
• All conference attendees
• Professional/Veteran science communicators
• Trainee science communicators
Please use this opportunity to teach the audience a new science communication skill or concept or share lessons learned about a project or collaboration. We ask that you refrain from pitching your services or business.
• Must show proof of full COVID vaccination (including two-week interval after second dose) has been completed on or before the first day of the conference, March 23, 2022.
• While we hope for a robust and safe in-person conference, we know that travel plans may change based on COVID developments in the weeks prior to the conference and we are planning to switch in-person speakers to online if needed. We ask that you choose the in-person speaking option only if it’s likely you will actually be able to attend in person (example: are based in the U.S.) and that you inform us as early as possible if your plans change.
• All online speakers must participate LIVE and in REAL-TIME, though you may use short pre-recorded sections if arranged in advance.
• We require all online speakers to attend a 30 min “tech check” meeting in the 2 weeks prior to the conference to confirm lighting, sound, and conference schedule. We will work with you to find a tech check meeting time that works with your schedule.
