FAQ Answers Annual Meeting Questions, like What Will the Program Be Like?

Annual Meeting News, Did you know...?

Here’s a question: “What kind of program can we expect, given two meeting modes?”

As usual, the lion’s share of the program depends on the proposals or presentations and events that are submitted by participants. If there is something you’d like to see, help us make it happen!

We encourage session organizers to think creatively about how to adapt panels to make the most of each meeting style. Contact us at [email protected] if you’d like to discuss options.

Important note: By default, panels will be scheduled in 90-minute blocks, not two hours. Why? That’s in the Annual Meeting FAQ, too.

We expect both modalities to include a range of events, including keynote addresses, sessions, and social and networking events, and to be complete, satisfying experiences individually, while also complementing each other.

Because social distancing reduces the physical capacity of the conference meeting space, and because more attendees will be able to participate in the virtual meeting, most paper panels will be presented virtually, while we will prioritize panels and events that foster or depend upon active interaction for the in-person meeting.

Proposals will be reviewed in May and June. We aim to release a preliminary program by the end of June.
Recordings of most virtual events will be added for on-demand viewing for a limited period of time to registered attendees.
