IARR leadership is mindful of the emergent Covid-19 conditions. During the January 21, 2022 Board of Directors meeting, a decision will be made whether the conference will be conducted in an inperson (face-to-face) or virtual (digital/online) format. An update about the decision will be posted on this website.
