CCSA’s Issues of Substance Conference

Information for 15-Minute Oral Presenters

Thank you for agreeing to present at CCSA’s Issues of Substance 2021 conference taking place virtually November 23–25, 2021.

Your Presentation

All concurrent sessions are 60 minutes in duration. The format of your presentation is a 15-minute oral presentation as part of a 60-minute concurrent session. Each presentation is 15 minutes, followed by a 15-minute moderated question and answer period. (A moderator will be provided by the conference.)

Declaration of Conflicts of Interest and Funders

Presenters are required to disclose any real or potential conflicts of interest by including a slide at the beginning of their presentation or workshop that discloses any conflict of interest and explains how they will address this conflict in their presentation or workshop. Presenters are also required to disclose the funder for the work on which they are presenting.

Contact Information

Presenters are asked to include their email address and other contact information in their presentation slides so that conference delegates know how to contact them to request copies of their presentation. CCSA will  be posting the videos of the presentations as part of a digital library on the conference  website for 30 calendar days after the conference.

Presentation Key Messages

For each presentation, we are asking you to prepare a separate document with three key messages or take-aways from your presentation. These key messages will be integrated into a conference report that will be publicly released after the conference.

Submitting Presentations

Please be ready to submit your PowerPoint presentation and key messages by November 5, 2021. Closer to the deadline, CCSA will email you a link to your submission for each presentation for which you are the primary presenter.

Technical Information

The event platform that has been selected for Issues of Substance 2021 is Chime Live, a highly interactive live video streaming platform, specifically designed for virtual events. The conference will incorporate a mix of both live and pre-recorded presentations.

All 15 minute oral presentations will be pre-recorded. Presenters will still need to be logged into the Zoom webinar during their presentation session to monitor the live chat and to respond during the live 15-inute question and answered period at the end of the session.

Information on the recording process as well as pre-recording guidelines and best practices will be sent to you and also posted on the Issues of Substance website by mid-October. Two weeks before the conference begins, you will receive information about how to access your session and other housekeeping items related to how your session will unfold.

The final CCSA’s Issues of Substance 2021 conference program will be available on the Issues of Substance website by October. We encourage you to bookmark this page and consult it on a regular basis for program updates.

We look forward to your presentation at CCSA’s Issues of Substance 2021!
