Meeting Format

Live virtual meeting on the Zoom videoconference platform

Delegates will be able to send questions at any time to the faculty via a Chat window​

Please note that Chat window content will be visible to all participants

Case Presentations

All participants are encouraged to submit a medical or surgical case study to be considered for inclusion in the program

If the number of submitted cases exceeds the allotted meeting time, a limited number of cases will be selected by the Co-chairs for presentation

Each case comprises 5 minutes of presentation followed by 5 minutes of discussion with faculty and participants

Case topics and titles should be provided when registering

In the event that the case title is not known when registering, this information must be provided by October 20 to Edna Dynka of SNELL Medical at [email protected]

A SNELL associate will follow up with all registrants regarding their case and, as necessary, technical requirements for presenting

In order to prevent technical issues during RCCC 2021, all final case slides must be provided to Edna Dynka by October 27 at 5:00 PM EDT

During the RCCC 2021 meeting, participants will present their cases using the Share Screen function on Zoom

Sponsor Presentations

Qualifying sponsors will deliver 5-minute presentations during the RCCC program

Sponsor presentations will be interspersed throughout the meeting, introduced by a Co-chair, and clearly delineated as not part of the scientific program

Please support our sponsors by viewing the presentations, as their ongoing sponsorship makes RCCC possible

​​Sponsor Breakout Rooms

All sponsors will have a private Breakout Room that delegates may visit during the lunch break

A Sponsor Breakout Room is a separate virtual meeting room where sponsors may present information on their companies, products or services through slides, video and/or live discussion with delegates

For the entire plenary session, delegates will have their mics and video cams disabled, however, for the Sponsor Breakout Rooms, if preferred, these can be activated to simulate a more in-person experience with all attendees visible and able to speak amongst themselves and the sponsor representatives, presenter, etc.

Delegates will have the flexibility to navigate in and out of Breakout Rooms of their choice during the lunch break

After the lunch break, all delegates will be redirected back to the Plenary Session Room, and their webcams and mics will be disengaged
