Day 5 of our 2021 Virtual Conference includes two incredible sessions.

Brief session details are below, please see the 2021 Conference Program for more details.

Session 1: Rethinking Resilience

In this talk, Drs Kim Hellemans and Ashley Thompson will present the neurobiological mechanisms underlying stress and coping and explore the genetic and environmental factors that contribute to resilience.

Session 2: SWCC Student Poster Competition

Join us for the first ever SWCC student poster competition. This competition is open to all postsecondary students in Canada studying science or science communication. Read the posters and meet Canada's next generation of scientists and science communicators.



This year a virtual Gather Hall will be open throughout the duration of the conference for attendees to drop in between sessions and after talks.  Registered participants will receive a link with their conference materials – just click, customize your digital avatar, and enter a digital world where you can reconnect with old friends and network with new acquaintances.  Be sure to visit our sponsor’s display booths, and don’t miss our student posters.

Conference hall attendees are expected to uphold a welcoming and professional environment. SWCC reserves the right to remove anyone from the Gather hall who is being disruptive.
