For this year, extended abstracts and papers for Canadian Acoustics are to be provided on a purely voluntary basis, only abstracts and short videos will be mandatory.
Lightning talks sessions will be used for researchers / students / exhibitors. Why ?
It is easy to loose focus and interest during lengthy online talks.
Within 30 minutes, two talks would be typically handled in a classical conference format while up to ten subjects can be covered using  a fast-paced session and 3-minute talks.
After each session, every attendant can join in the virtual meeting spaces to discuss the subjects that triggered interest
