--- ARSC VIRTUAL CONFERENCE ---
-- SAVE THE DATES: May 21-23, 2020 --
We are pleased to announce that the previously cancelled 2020 ARSC
Conference in Montreal will now take place online. While certainly not an
ideal scenario, ARSC is committed to facilitating the sharing of knowledge
throughout the field. In an effort to strengthen our community ties in this
time of isolation, the online conference will be open to members and the
public free of charge.
The conference will take place May 21-23, 2020. Presentations will be given
on May 21 and 22 between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. EDT. The
annual business meeting will be held on May 23 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
EDT. Live presentations and the annual business meeting will be made
available through the Zoom Video Webinar platform. Some presenters have
opted to submit pre-recorded videos; these will be made available for
on-demand viewing through the Aviary online platform.
We are working to provide more detailed information on the ARSC website. In
the coming weeks, we plan to share the updated program, registration
information, and the technical information needed to access the Zoom
Stay tuned for more information. We look forward to seeing you online!
