When submitting an abstract to CEW 2022, returning members will notice last year we introduced a new online platform to accommodate the hybrid model. The platform is called Pheedloop. While we find it to be very user-friendly, please let us know if you encounter any major difficulties.

In regards to Student Awards, two new awards will be given out for the Virtual Platform and Virtual Posters because of the new Hybrid model. Thus, in-person events will be judged against other in-person events and virtual events will be judged against other virtual events.
