CAST 2021 presented by STAT 

Thank you for your interest in participating in CAST 2021 by submitting a workshop session proposal. Please note that at this time, STAT is moving forward with the planning of a version of an in-person event, but the format (size, structure) are still unknown.

CAST session presenters serve on the front line of the conference, and your feedback about the current and anticipated event climate is invaluable. During this proposal submission process, you will be asked questions related to your comfort level with the current event climate and safety precautions that will help STAT leadership with their planning process.

Additionally, STAT will be exploring offering a virtual component to CAST, so please consider your ability and willingness to deliver content virtually as this will be asked as part of the submission process.
