2020 Celebration of Excellence and Engagement
In partnership with the University of Toronto, the 2020 COEE will be a week-long scholarly, scientific and artistic exploration combining in-person activities with enhanced digital engagement. Over seven days, from November 23 to November 29, over 1,000 delegates will engage in 70+ sessions featuring the insights of hundreds of scholars, clinicians, artists and scientists on the key issues of our time. There will be two international symposia: the G7 Research Summit on the Future of Digital Health; and a virtual symposium organized by the University of Toronto celebrating the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin, exploring the legacy of this discovery, and examining its intersections with COVID-19 research. While we have made preparations for large physical spaces – at the Westin Harbour Castle, in Toronto – for some activities and gatherings if/as circumstances allow, we have focused on increasing online options.
Nearly all activities will be live, and then made available for download. Some activities will be open discussions, others will be presentations of the latest research findings followed by Q&A. However, most important is that all activities provide opportunities for engagement, learning, and the exchange of insights and experience. All are welcome, all are invited to contribute.
