The 2020 ISSRM Virtual Conference, hosted by the International Association for Society and Natural Resources (IASNR), will be held from July 11-26 and will be administered through Whova. The conference will feature over 200 stellar presentations, posters, panels, and workshops on local to global topics at the intersection between society and natural resources. All of the presentations are pre-recorded and can be viewed anytime and before the conference officially begins. Days and times for the live Q&A discussions are included in the conference program. Please note: the Poster Session is for asynchronous viewing only. A condensed version of the program is available on the IASNR website. The full program can be found on Whova.

If you are a current IASNR member, you should receive an email notification shortly with instructions on how to login to Whova. If you are a current member and have not received the Whova email by 2:00 PM CDT, please contact [email protected].

The IASNR Office has prepared a short demo/tutorial of Whova to illustrate how to use the application and several great features. Click here to watch the video.

We are thrilled to announce that for the first time, IASNR is offering presentations in non-English languages. We have video presentations in Hindi, Indonesian, Spanish, and Urdu. As an international organization, IASNR is committed to serving the diversity of our membership. We hope to offer similar opportunities in our in-person meetings.

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

We look forward interacting with you virtually!

Best regards,
