Conference Format

ACR 2023 will be in person to allow the community to continue to connect with friends, colleagues, and collaborators, old and new.  Some content will be accessible to virtual attendees, but, due to technical constraints, we do not plan to livestream sessions. All presentations at the conference will 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.
