WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Presentations are reserved for Canadian student researchers and post-doctoral researchers working in the north. This means you have a research link through your supervisor or committee members, or others involved in your northern research. If you are a student or postdoc doing research in the north you are welcome to participate! And remember this is a free conference!

We are looking for talks from a variety of disciplines doing northern research from natural science, social science, and Indigenous perspectives.

If you have any questions about participating please email ecr.wlu@gmail.com to inquire. If you would like to participate but not present (i.e., Faculty researchers), please register for the zoom event at the meeting above.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE?

There are two ways to participate in CRRC Days. You can do a paper presentation which is a 15-minute presentation of your research, or a lightning round talk, which is a 3-minute synopsis similar to the three minute thesis. For both types of presentation, you are required to submit an abstract (up to 250 words) when you register for the conference. The deadline for submission of abstracts is November 9, 2020. You will receive confirmation on your participation type/acceptance on November 16th, 2020.
