Applicants may, if they choose, indicate if they identify as members of equity-deserving groups, including members of racialized groups, people with disabilities, sexual and gender minorities, and Indigenous people.


Individual presentations will be a maximum of 20 minutes long, including questions and discussion. Presenters should aim to speak/present for 12 minutes to allow sufficient time for questions and discussion.
