CASCA Annual Meetings are open to all interested persons (whether belonging to the Society or not) who register in attendance. Presentation of scientific papers (talks or posters) is restricted to members or applicants for membership or temporary residents of Canada who are sponsored by a present member or other speakers invited by the Local Organizing Committee. Excluding invited talks, any CASCA member is allowed to present one oral and one poster communication if they so wish, if time permits and at the discretion of the Local Organizing Committee. However, their name can appear on additional papers as an additional co-author. Papers of absentee authors will not be presented, except by title only. Non members may present a sponsored talk or poster once every five years.
Note: A supervisor of an undergraduate student can ask (on an occasional basis) that the undergraduate be allowed to present their research. CASCA offers travel support to encourage graduate student and post-doctoral fellow members to attend the annual meeting. Each year, prizes are awarded by the CASCA board for the best talk and poster presented by a graduate student member.
