    IARR Conference 2022

    At the recommendation of the Conference Oversight Committee, the IARR Board has made the very difficult decision to move our 2022 conference to an online format. While we appreciate that this is disappointing news, in light of current uncertainty regarding COVID and in the interests of the health and safety of our members, we are convinced it is the appropriate decision to make at this time.

    Plans have not yet been solidified, but we are looking at holding the virtual conference during roughly the same dates the in person conference was to be held (July 28 - August 1), though likely over fewer days. We will be able to provide a more definitive set of dates once the extended submission process is complete. A brief poll regarding your preferences will be sent out in the IARR February Announcements that will assist us in determining the final scheduling.

    You will also be pleased to know that we have not abandoned all plans for a conference in London. Our hope is to hold a future conference there sometime after the 2024 conference in Boston.

    As you might know, the original deadline for conference submissions was January 15, 2022. In light of Covid-19 conditions, this deadline is currently extended until February 15, 2022.
