The platform will allow everyone to connect with each other easily, share information, visit exhibitors, attend presentations and view them later.

The organizers of MODELS 2022 understand that it may be unfeasible for some participants to travel to Canada due to circumstances outside their control. Under exceptional hardship circumstances, the organizers may grant a virtual participation voucher to a limited number of participants for exceptional situations. If you are in such a situation, you can contact the organizers and clearly explain your exceptional situation. Please note that there is only a limited number of virtual participation vouchers available.

At least one co-author of every paper (main or satellite) must pay the in-person fee by the early registration deadline and present in person. If none of the co-authors of a paper can attend in person for an exceptional situation, please contact the organizers of your event to accommodate for an online presentation.
