Pandemic Response Plan

On behalf of the 2021 ECSEPS Organizing Committee from University of Windsor, we are pleased to be hosting the conference. We want to share some important information with you about this year’s conference. After much deliberation and taking into account that many universities across Ontario are moving to online classes for the Winter semester and the uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be hosting ECSEPS virtually on March 25th and 26th, 2021.  


With ECSEPS being a student first conference, we want to maximize the opportunities for students to showcase and present their research. Our goal is to provide virtual breakout sessions that mirror a typical session at ECSEPS. This year, however, all presentations will be pre-recorded and “played” during a live session, followed by a live question and answer period with the presenter.  


To facilitate the move to this online conference format, we need to know how many students are planning on attending and presenting at ECSEPS this March. Knowing how many students will be presenting will help us determine the number of presentation times slots required. 


We are asking that ALL students who are planning on presenting at ECSEPS submit an “intention to submit”. This very short form can be found on the Intention to Submit page of our website. We kindly ask that you complete this by Friday November 13th, 2020.  


We will provide more information on the abstract submission deadline and presentation formats in early December once we know how many students are interested in presenting their research.
