Conference Format (Pre-recorded and live)
Part 1: Pre-recorded

Opening on September 1, 2021, we will offer access to all pre-recorded content for the CACAP conference. This will include: keynote speakers’ presentations, all Academic Perspective sessions, all Research Symposia and all visual content of all posters.

Early access to pre-recorded content will permit our attendees to pace themselves and watch these pre-recorded sessions whenever convenient. There will also be opportunities to engage in periodic Q&A with all speakers.

Part 2: Live
The “live” part of the conference will run between four and six hours daily to accommodate different time zones. The pre-conference Institute will run on Saturday September 11, and the main conference takes place on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. The live content will run from 11:30-18:00 Eastern Time (ET), allowing our attendees to use the other available hours in the day to watch the pre-recorded videos from Part 1, interact online with other attendees and our sponsors, or catch up with work.

CACAP Institute
Saturday September 11, 2021 from 1300 to 1710 ET
We will once again be hosting the CACAP Institute in 2021!  Using a combination of lectures and workshop approaches, the CACAP Institute series is a pre-conference event that provides a more nuanced discussion of key topics in child and youth mental health for the more advanced learner. This year’s Institute will examine the management of child and adolescent Bipolar Disorder and the management of complexity and comorbidity in Autism Spectrum Disorders.
