Crowdsourcing Call

Crowdsourcing Call

In keeping with principles of equity, open science, and the wisdom of crowds, we invite the community to submit applications for keynote speakers and symposia. 

We invite suggestions for two keynote speakers (25-minute presentation and 5 min Q&A) and individuals for our symposia sessions (3 speakers, 90-minutes). Given that CARC 2023 will be held virtually, there is an opportunity to have a mix of national and international speakers. All speakers must be available to present virtually on Feb. 15 and/or 16, 2023, between approximately 11:40 – 16:30 ET.  

Submissions will be evaluated by the CARC Scientific Committee. Selection criteria include the importance and impact of the topic, patient involvement, principles of equity, diversity, inclusivity and Indigenous rights, and in the case of symposia, a panel comprised of multiple disciplines.  

Guidelines for applications can be found here. Please submit your suggestions for speakers through CARC’s online system. All applications must be received by June 3. 

Email imha-iala@cihr-irsc.gc.ca if you have any questions about the application process. 

We will contact only those whose applications are accepted in summer 2022. Thank you for your patience.
