This conference will prioritize accessibility. Guidelines for accessible presentations will appear on the conference website closer to the date of the conference. Conference rooms are wheelchair accessible, and information about wheelchair accessible parking, transportation, and accommodations will be available by the time of participant notifications. Participants will be asked to use microphones for presentations and for discussion periods. There will be vegan/vegetarian friendly food, and there will be space on the registration form to note food allergies and sensitivities. Participants are asked not to bring or wear strong scents. A quiet room will be available. The University of Regina has spaces for smudging, which can be accessed on request.
Further information, such as information about childcare, nursing and change room areas, is available upon request.
All conference participants will be asked to identify any presentation technologies and/or other supports required to participate, and anything else that can help mitigate potential barriers to participation. All information will be kept confidential.
If you have any questions or concerns about accessibility, now or as the conference approaches, please contact conference co-organizer, Anna Mudde, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate that the University of Regina, Regina campus, is situated on Treaty 4 land, the traditional territory of Cree, Saulteaux, Assiniboine, and other Indigenous peoples, and the homeland of the Métis.
