The week will begin with the traditional CAP Herzberg Memorial Lecture on Sunday evening, June 6th.  The official Congress week will be launched with the NSERC community update on Monday June 7 from 11h00-11h30 EST. During the remainder of the week, there will be a series of plenary talks, technical sessions/talks, student presentation competition sessions, and several symposia offered by the CAP divisions and its partners.


The general outline of our virtual conference is in the program outline posted here.  The detailed online timetable will be posted once the program has been developed by the Program Committee towards the end of March.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS – Post-deadline submissions 

The CAP is using the Indico system for the submission and processing of Congress abstracts.  The initial call for abstracts has now closed.  The abstract submission system was re-opened at EOB on Friday, March 5th for invited speaker abstracts and post-deadline poster submissions and closes 23h59 EDT Wednesday, March 31st.

The abstract guidelines are available by selecting the abstract submissions button in the menu on the left.  Ready to submit an abstract, click here.


The 2021 CAP Congress will be hosted using the Underline management program (see https://underline.io for more information).  Full instructions on how to access and use the system will be posted closer to Congress, once the developed program is transferred to that system for the running of the online congress.
