Q: Does the meeting have a registration fee?
A: No, the meeting is free!
Q: Is there funding to support travel to the meeting?
A: Yes, travel funding is available for eligible stakeholders! Funds are generally reserved for stakeholders/partners. We encourage participants from non-profits, city, state, and tribal governments, private foundations to apply. Generally, international travel and federal civil servants are not eligible for funding due to restrictions from the funding source. We typically do not prioritize funding academic participants.
Q: Are there opportunities for me or my organization to present?
A: We will have panels, a poster session, and virtual flash talks.
- Panels generally have four speakers each, who speak for about 10 minutes each, with the remaining time for discussion.
- Virtual flash talks are pre-recorded and typically run between 3 – 5 minutes.
- We are also planning a poster session.
- Please indicate your interest in speaking or presenting a poster on the registration form.
