2020 ISSRM Virtual Conference

2020 ISSRM – Virtual Conference, Hosted by IASNR

July 11-26, 2020

Each year we gather at our annual ISSRM to share research, reconnect with colleagues, and make new connections. Because we cannot meet in person this year, we are hosting a virtual conference. We value what each of you contribute to society and natural resources research and practice and we want to provide the opportunity to share those contributions.

We are planning a series of workshops, paper sessions, a poster session, a student forum, and a mentorship activity. Workshops and paper presentations will be pre-recorded and available for viewing at any time during the conference dates. Set times will be scheduled for live question and answer sessions. Discussions will continue on message forums throughout the conference. Please see “Submission Information” below for more information or contact [email protected].

Submission Information

We have accepted over 200 abstract submissions and over 20 organized sessions, workshops, and panels!

Although the deadline for session proposals and abstract submission has passed, we are still accepting late submissions on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Jessica Hill ([email protected]) if you have a late submission request. 

Please click here for presentation instructions for paper sessions and here for instructions for poster presentations as you prepare your presentation.

If you need to make changes to your abstract or organized session proposal you may do so by clicking here and selecting “Edit” next to your submission title. Please note: you must be logged into your account to edit your submission. 

Please email Jessica Hill ([email protected]) if you have any questions.

Student Paper Competition

Due to the cancellation of ISSRM 2020 in Cairns, Australia, the requirements for the Best Student Paper Award Competition have been revised. In order to give more time to adjust, student abstracts are now due June 1st, and completed papers are due by July1st. Participating students are highly encouraged, but not required, to participate in the 2020 Virtual Conference. Please click here for more information or download the Call for Papers flyer here.

Conference Registration

The IASNR Council understands that we are facing unprecedented times, with many members confronting funding issues. Therefore, the Council has voted to have IASNR fund the conference entirely for all current IASNR members. If you would like to participate in this virtual conference, just be sure to renew your membership by June 15, 2020.
