Authors will provide 2-minute previews of their Interactive Papers in the group technical session followed by time for you to visit their Poster and interact with them in real time. This will take place in dedicated Zoom spaces; each author will be in a different Zoom. Links to each paper will be posted below before the session.

Be sure to vote for the Cactus Award for Best Interactive Paper!


CIC28 Final Program and Proceedings may be downloaded from any library under the Technical Sessions tab.


We're using Discord to help you connect with others. Discord allows you to have real-time audio, video, and IM chats with colleagues. We set up one channel for Keynotes and Speakers, for post-talk discussions, and a number of open channels that you can use to talk with others you see online. Like an in-person coffee break, feel free to wander into different channels and see each other.

Review the Discord Instructions for an overview of the platform. Get access via the CONNECT tab. You must be logged in to see the tab in the menu bar. You must create a free discord account to use this feature.


All of the CIC28 workshops are included in the conference technical registration, but you do not have to attend the technical program to attend a workshop. Links to the live workshops will be posted on the WORKSHOPS tab, within the specific workshop, ~30 minutes before its start.


Access live courses and/or view the course recording via the SHORT COURSES menu tab.
