WITP Summer Student Symposium 2022
17 Aug 2022, UWinnipeg Room 2M73 & Online

This will be a hybrid online/in-person event. The symposium will be held at the University of Winnipeg in Manitoba Hall Room 2M73 and broadcast on zoom. Speakers may present in person or via zoom.


COVID Protocol

The University of Winnipeg administration has requested that we follow these COVID protocols for in-person participation:

Visitor Passes & Parking

The UWinnipeg campus is currently closed, so anyone without regular access must check in with security and receive a visitor pass. Please buzz at the entrance to Centennial Hall (just above the LD symbol on the campus maps) and stop by the security office just inside to check in. We plan to have someone meet you and provide directions.

If you are driving, please park in the Axworth Health & Recplex parkade off Young Street (see the parking map). We can provide a voucher to pay for your parking.

Zoom Software

We are using zoom software to broadcast and host remote talks. In case you're not familiar, you do not need an account to use zoom. You can download the zoom client software or mobile app here or join the meeting through your web browser here.

Information for Speakers

Talks are 17 minutes in length including questions and set-up.

All speakers should connect to the symposium zoom meeting. During your talk, we will make you a zoom meeting co-host to allow you to share your screen. If you are in-person, please keep your microphone mute on zoom and also turn off/mute your computer speakers to avoid feedback with the room's sound system. You can connect to the campus wifi using the "eduroam" network with your home university login.

Hints: In most cases, it works best for you to share just the window you use to view your presentation and then go to full-screen mode, but some people find sharing their entire screen to be necessary. We recommend you practice with someone on zoom in advance. Remember that most of the audience will be students who haven't studied your area of research!
