33RD Annual Canadian Student Health Research Forum August 24 – 28, 2020

We are delighted to advise that key components of the annual Research Days event  (Canadian Student Health Research Forum, CSHRF) will be offered in a virtual format later this summer.

Regarding the Manitoba Poster Competition, the virtual format will include pre-recorded video presentations by student presenters followed (after initial evaluation by judges) by live (Zoom) discussion with the judges.  Details of the mechanism by which presentations will be recorded will be provided to registered presenters in due course.  The general time-frame for this process will be for students to upload their presentations between July 27 – 31 so that judges will have time to review presentations prior to their live discussion on the morning of August 21 (note: students will need to be available during the morning of Aug 21 for live (Zoom) Q&A).

As you may anticipate, this will require considerable organization of virtual material (including videos), judging and Zoom meetings, so your adherence to the July 3 deadline for registration is essential. Please note that Certificates of participation, awards of excellence and access to the CIHR National Poster Presentation will be available. More details regarding other events (eg. Gairdner Symposium) within the CSHRF (week of August 24 – 28) will be available shortly.
