Event Registration

Presenter Registration

Students will present their work virtually through an academic poster (PDF) and a pre-recorded narration (3-5 minutes) through YouTube describing their project. More information on appropriate poster templates and guidance on creating and uploading your narration video via YouTube is available on the student resources page. The registration deadline has been extended to April 9, 2021, to be featured in the online forum.

Follow these guidelines:

  • Complete a separate registration for each project, if you wish to present more than one.
  • Complete only one registration form if presenting as a group.
  • Submit your abstract as part of registration. The information provided will be displayed in the online forum for all participants to view.

Presenter Registration Form

Important note: your poster PDF and voiceover video will need to be ready at the time of registration. In cases that your poster and video files are not completed at the time of registration, please do not submit incomplete registration. Instead, we prefer you submit your completed registration even if it's shortly past the April 9 deadline.


Become a Judge
