Message from the Cyber Summit organizing committee:

In light of the alarming COVID-19 case numbers and hospitalizations in Alberta, the Cyber Summit organizers have made the difficult decision to remove the in-person portion of our November event. The event will now continue on as an entirely virtual conference, running over the same dates.

We will be exchanging all existing in-person tickets to online tickets, and the Banff Park Lodge will cancel all hotel rooms booked under the Cyber Summit block. If you have any questions about this, please contact us at summit@cybera.ca

We have also reduced the cost of online tickets, to reflect the reduced expense of running an entirely virtual conference, and will reimburse those who have already bought an online ticket at the higher rate.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, and we look forward to hosting you at our online event!

This year's Summit will be virtual, taking place online November 9-10, with workshops the afternoon of November 8.

With this year's Summit taking place 20 months after COVID-19 hit North America, it seems fitting to look at how our ecosystem is moving to the "new normal".

We know this pandemic has led to a rapid acceleration of the use of digital technologies for remote learning and working. Combined with the advances in automation, and AI, the ways we interact with each other and our economy are changing. As we return to a post-pandemic world, it will be one that is forever changed. The question now is: what practices will be different, what will stay the same, and how will our lives improve as we adapt to the "new normal"?
