Bodies of Knowledge

Cancellation Notice

Due to the current state of affairs regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, KPEGS and the Bodies of Knowledge 2020 Committee have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Bodies of Knowledge Conference, scheduled for Friday May 22, 2020. The increasing health concerns and the critical need for proper distancing practices make it impossible to continue towards executing a large group event during this time.

We appreciate your understanding and support on this matter, and look forward to the continuation of scientific communication and knowledge translation from graduate students across Canada next year.
