CREATE 2022 is considered 'hybrid' with both virtual and face to face events. Exact guidelines will be shared with the community closer to April. Virtual events will either happen in real-time, where students will present their pre-recorded projects to a live audience, or they will be asynchronous, meaning you will submit your project ahead of the conference and we will upload it to the event forum. Choose the activities you would like to participate in (you can choose more than one). Times and spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please check out the CREATE website to find detailed event descriptions BEFORE registering.

We will do our best to accommodate your schedule. CREATE events will run from Monday, April 4 to Thursday, April 7. Mornings are 9am-12pm Afternoons are 12pm-4pm Evenings are 4pm-7pm
