Annual Conference News and Education

A robust program is taking shape for the ISEE Virtual Conference, which will include at least 27 Symposia. Over 100 late breaking abstracts were submitted. The opening of online registration and notifications for all travel awards (which are being turned into registration fee waivers), orals and posters abstracts are scheduled to occur between May 25-29. Registration fees are now posted on the ISEE annual meeting web page. Note that you must be a member in good standing through August 28 to be eligible for member discount.

NEW ISEE Guidelines for Conferences

In May, the ISEE Executive Council approved two new guideline documents. The ISEE Greening Statement commits ISEE to reducing the carbon footprint for the Society’s annual international conferences.  The Guidelines for ISEE Conference Session Chairs provides a practical tool for session chairs to organize in-person quality sessions that promote discussion to advance science while assuring all participants feel safe and included. This document will be amended later this summer to address virtual events.
