Registration is now open, see links below

We have decided to have no early-bird for SIGwriting 2022. We have taken this decision as planning travel is difficult at the moment, and many universities are currently not allowing their employees to book international travel. It also allows people more time for the situation to change before people have to decide if they can travel to Umeå, or if they will need to attend via the zoom version of the conference. We have however set a LAST date for registration so that we can more easily plan the practicalities of the conference on campus and in zoom. Please note there are different fees for the on-campus and zoom versions, and different fees for members and non-members of sig-writing. Deadline for registration is April 30th.

Hybrid conference
Zoom for the research school and SIG-writing 2022

We have decided to have zoom versions of the research school and the SIG-writing 2022 conferences. After consideration of options we have decided to provide  low-budget non-equivalent zoom attendance options. 
Every session will have a zoom breakout room and a host in Umeå who will assure all is working properly and sort issues if they arise.

For the research school:
The non-equivalent zoom version may mean that some sessions will be unavailable via zoom, and that groups for discussions will be separate for those attending via zoom and this attending in Umeå. The lectures will be provided via screen-sharing, with questions posed via the zoom chat. 

For the SIG-writing conference:

The conference will be held on Umeå University campus. However, due to the current COVID-19 situation, there will also be a low-budget zoom version of the conference that will allow both attendance and presentation at a distance—see the zoom tab for more information. Naturally, we hope as most of you will be able to come to Umeå and physically attend the conference!

When presenting: you will present via zoom and the share screen function. We will project your presentation for those in your session to see and hear. 

When attending other presentations: All presentations will made using share screen in zoom. Those attending via zoom will be asked to write any question(s) in the zoom chat.
Between sessions we will leave the zoom breakout rooms open so that you can socialize with other zoom attendees.

More detailed instructions about how to use our low-budget non-equivalent zoom conference will be provided immediately before the conference.
