Preliminary Book of Abstracts Released

The Preliminary Book of Abstracts is now available to read online. This version comes in advance of the final book of abstracts which will be completed in September. To ensure that you are part of the final program, please register before the September 1st deadline for accepted authors!

The host team in Toronto, as well as the Scientific Steering Committee have been busy assigning abstracts to panels, and we hope authors are glad to see who they will likely present alongside during the parallel panel sessions in October.

For authors of accepted abstracts, please note the following:

  • Presenting authors that have not registered by 1st September will have their paper removed from the Conference programme. If you wish for a co-author to present in your stead, please notify the Organizing Team ahead of this date.
  • The current allocation to on-site and virtual panels has been made based on the preference included during the abstract submission. Following 1st September, the allocation will be made based on the author’s choice of registration ticket.
  • For any questions and updates please get in touch with us at
