Virtual Conference Q & A
Below are questions and answers about the 2021 CGSI Virtual Conference.
Will I need special software?
The CGSI Live! agenda uses a platform which operates in a standard web browser. You will be able to view presentations and interact with others without needing any additional software. The workshops and research consultations will be conducted via Zoom, which requires a minimal download.
How do research consultations work?
A limited number of registrants will be accepted to schedule a research consultation with an experienced CGSI volunteer. CGSI research volunteers will take registrants’ information or brick wall problems and use online resources to uncover research results. Research consultations are included in the registration cost of CGSI Live! and Combo packages.
Are workshop spaces limited?
Yes. Because the workshops are intended to be hands-on, they will be conducted in small groups. Availability is first come, first served. Workshop descriptions are available here and workshop registrations can be purchased here.
Connecting with other attendees is one of my favorite parts of a conference. How will I be able to do that?
The online platform will be set up to encourage communication and sharing between attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and sponsors. Multiple discussion areas will be setup for you to "chat" with others of similar interests.
What if I miss a presentation that I wanted to watch?
Recordings of all presentations will be available to attendees who purchase an On Demand or Combo package. Recordings will be available for multiple viewings for six months.
Will there be handouts?
All conference attendees will receive a PDF copy of the conference syllabus before the start of the conference.
