*CALL FOR ABSTRACTS*
The SAIP2022 conference will be completely virtual. In order to maximize virtual engagement, minimize any potential connectivity issues, and optimize the virtual conference environment, the LOC has decided to use the following conference formats:
The Zoom platform will be used for oral sessions. Oral presentations will be allocated 15 minutes (12 minutes for the presentation and 3 minutes for discussion and/or questions). We will make use of 12 minutes of pre-recorded videos combined with a live 3 minute Q&A session. Oral presenters should upload, by 17 June 2022, a video of their presentation on the indico system. Details regarding the upload process will follow in due course.
In order to provide an engaging and interactive virtual poster session for SAIP 2022, the LOC has decided to make use of the Gather platform for the poster sessions. In addition, we have decided to set aside a full day for the poster sessions to maximize engagement. We will request that the poster presenter upload, by 17 June 2022, a high-resolution pdf file of their poster on the Indico system. The submission of a short video summary, for poster presenters, is therefore not a requirement anymore. Details regarding the upload process will follow in due course.

Abstract submission will close on 22 April 2022, and acceptance notifications will be sent out on the 30th of May 2022. Registration for the conference will close on the 21st of June 2022. Participants that have not registered by that deadline will, unfortunately, have their abstracts removed from the conference system, and will lose the opportunity to submit a conference proceeding.
