Meeting Format

View On-Demand Presentations

Google Chrome is the best browser to use for the meeting.

We are looking forward to an in-person meeting in Spokane, with all invited talks presented in person, but we are committed to providing viewing and presentation (oral and poster) options for remote attendees. Invited and focus sessions will be live-streamed with the possibility for virtual audiences to ask questions of the presenters. See below for more details of the format of each session.

Invited and focus sessions

All talks in the Invited and Focus sessions will be given in person, and will be live-streamed via the virtual platform with the possibility for virtual audiences to ask questions of the presenters.  

Contributed oral sessions

Based on feedback from DAMOP 2022 meeting attendees we decided to separate in-person and virtual oral sessions in 2023. In-person contributed sessions will be all in-person and will not be live-streamed to the virtual audience. The only way contributed talks will be available to the virtual audience (and to all attendees through the virtual platform) is by upload of pre-recorded talks before the meeting.  

A number of virtual contributed sessions will be held live on the virtual platform, with opportunities for participants to interact with each other and ask questions after each talk. All virtual contributions will also be recorded and be available on-demand.

Note that we are asking ALL participants contributing an oral presentation to upload a video of their talk in advance of the meeting, which will then be available on-demand to all registered participants.

Contributed poster sessions 

There will be three live poster sessions for in-person participants, and one live poster session for virtual participants. All poster presenters will need to upload an electronic version of their poster for remote viewing. They will also have the option to upload a five-minute video explanation along with their poster. Posters and accompanying videos will be available to all registered participants on demand. 

Graduate Student Symposium 

The theme of this year’s Graduate Student Symposium is Outstanding Answers to Outstanding Questions. The symposium will be in-person only and take place all day on Monday, June 5. Students must register for the symposium in advance.  

Grant and Awards

DAMOP has a limited number of caregiver grants (up to $500) and student participation awards (up to $600).
