The 2023 NARWC Annual Meeting will be a two day in-person event with virtual attendance/presentation opportunities.
The 2023 Meeting will take place at the Halifax Convention Center in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Capacity limits will be strictly enforced and therefore early registration is strongly recommended for those who wish to participate in person.
The Annual Meeting will feature both live and pre-recorded presentations from both onsite and remote participants.
All registered participants (in-person and remote) will have a unique login to the meeting site which will allow for access to view all of the pre-recorded presentations that should be viewed in advance of the meeting. Participants will also have an opportunity to submit questions/comments in advance of the meeting as well as live during the meeting.
**NEW** For the 2023 meeting, we will use Zoom as an interface for remote and onsite participants to interact onscreen and audibly.
.The live meeting will consist of live presentations from in-person and remote participants as well as Q&A sessions with presenters (both live and pre-recorded/viewed) in each of the topic sessions. All presenters from each session will be live on stage and/or on screen to take questions that were submitted in advance of the meeting, as well as those asked live by remote and in person participants. Each Q&A session will be moderated by a Board member.
Remote Participants: New this year - you will have opportunities to ask your question(s) live during the meeting. Simply raise your virtual hand and you will be put into the queue. The session moderator will alternate between in person and remote questions. You should be on mute until the moderators calls you in for your questions. You should NOT use the zoom chat for questions directed at presenters given the number of remote participants and how busy the chat is likely to be. You have the option to be on or off camera. Please know that on camera participants will be visible to onsite participants.
Onsite Participants: We will have two standing microphones in the meeting room. Participants wishing to ask a question should form queues at the mics and wait to be acknowledged by the session moderator. There will be an onsite participant camera so that remote participants can view questions and discussions from those onsite.
There will be a single registration fee for the NARWC meeting that will allow for participation in all events for both days. There will be no single session or single day fee. Registration closes at 5pm EDT on October 6th. This is a HARD deadline and we will not accept registrations after this date.
Registration for the Ropeless meeting is separate and can be accessed via the Ropeless Consortium website.
