Hybridity Approach

We are planning for this to be an in-person conference, with some elements available online for a reduced registration fee. We plan to make the Presidential Address, ACR Fellows Addresses, and Plenary Panels available via live-streaming, as well as other selected sessions, so that there is at least one session available for live-streaming per time slot. Additionally, films from the film festival will be available for online viewing throughout the conference. Thus, significant content will be accessible to virtual attendees, but, due to technical constraints, we do not plan to livestream all of the sessions and we expect presentations at the conference to be delivered in person. If you submit a paper or proposal or film, it is with the understanding that you or a co-author will attend the conference to present it.
