The Communities Conference will bring together Members of CAUDIT's Communities of Practice and Special Interest Groups to celebrate innovations, explore challenges and opportunities, and share best practices. 

The Conference agenda will feature plenary, panel, and technical sessions spanning a range of CoP disciplines and several networking opportunities

Individual Community sessions will be spread out over the 2.5 days to allow community members to sit in on other community sessions ensuring maximum exposure to other topics that are also relevant to your work.

Concurrent sessions will run for approximately 25 minutes. 


Submissions will be reviewed by the respective Community Chairs and will be assessed based on relevance to the community, originality and the possibilities for the audience to learn something new and/or to apply the content.

The conference is designed to work harmoniously with existing Community events and sessions.  Submissions that are not able to be included in the Conference Agenda will likely be bookmarked for future Community online meetings. 

Please note: Vendors wishing to submit an abstract must ensure their submission is  a case study co-presented with a CAUDIT member institution. If this is not the case the abstract will not be considered.
