Frequently asked questions
- AIMday will consist of one-hour, moderated workshop discussions with designated research panels based around each question submitted.
- The final schedule will be circulated approximately one week prior to the event, along with links for each registered participant to access their session(s).
- Organizations will also be invited to a welcome session. We encourage all participants to attend this session in addition to their scheduled workshop(s).
- Networking opportunities will be available and encouraged throughout the day.
We welcome questions from companies and organizations.
The questions can be wide or narrow in scope. We don’t put any restrictions on the question formulation, and it’s you and your organization who decide the character of the question.
A maximum of five questions per organization can be asked. Experience has shown that the best results are yielded when at least two representatives from an organization attend the workshop discussions.
- Organizations register their intent to participate through the AIMday portal. They may submit a research question at this point but it is not a necessity. The contact who completes the initial registration becomes the primary AIMday contact.
- Once registered, primary contacts will be contacted to start the process of developing or fine-tuning the organization’s research question. Questions will be tailored to target optimal discussion.
- Organizations register up to two people to participate in AIMday, which can (but does not have to) include the primary contact. Additional registrants may be added as observers at the discretion of the organization.
- At any time, if it is necessary to change any registration information, organizations should contact Lisa Leung, Manager, Collaborations, Programs & Initiatives at Toronto Metropolitan University.
