Online Special Events

For delegates who are primarily presenting or engaging online, we have a number of face-to-face online interactive sessions. You can begin to sign up for these today to start receiving further information. Exact times for each session will be announced one week prior to the conference.

Join other delegates for a pre-conference welcome reception. We'll send you a package of digital treats, discuss this year's theme, and walk you through the CGScholar Event Microsite so you have a rich online experience.

Talk with this year's Plenary Speakers in a live question and answer session.

Please check the event schedule for specific times.

Talking Circles are a distinctive feature of our in-person conference, and this year we are taking them online. Talking Circles offer an opportunity to meet other delegate face-to-face, and engage in extended discussion about the issues and concerns they feel are of utmost importance to that segment of the Research Network. Participation is open, encouraged, and supported. In order to incorporate our international delegates, there will be two Talking Circles:

Closing Talking Circle - 10 September 2021 - 10:00AM CST // 16:00PM Lisbon

Online Engagement Session

We are excited to announce the online conference will be delivered on the CGScholar platform – developed by the Common Ground Media Lab, the research and technology arm of Common Ground Research Networks.

This special event will walk you through the CGScholar Event Mircosite so you have a rich online experience by learning how to comment and participate online. It will also teach delegates how to update their profile and Presenter Pages in order to add digital media: video, sound, other files.
