[NEW] Interested in converting the format or timing of your panel or roundtable?
ISA is expanding its virtual capacity for Nashville and we have the ability to convert/reschedule a limited number of existing in-personal panels and roundtables into virtual sessions. Requests are not guaranteed and only one change request per session is permitted. The deadline to submit a conversion/rescheduling request is January 15th - No requests can be accepted or accommodated after this date - No exceptions.
Please note that three types of conversion requests are currently available, and that only one conversion request may be submitted per panel or roundtable. “Hybrid” sessions (that is, panels/roundtables with both virtual and in-person participants) will not be possible in Nashville. However, onsite participants will be able to participate in and attend virtual sessions as well as in-person sessions.
- Virtual to Virtual - You would choose this option if you would like to remain as a virtual item but request a scheduling (day/time) change.
- In-Person to Virtual - You would choose this option if you would like to convert your session from an in-person session to a virtual item. This will also entail moving to a different day and time.
- Virtual to In-Person - You would choose this option if you would like to convert your session from a virtual session to an in-person session. This will also entail moving to a different day and time.
Currently, all of these requests must be made at the session level and need to be initiated by chairs or discussants. Once your request is submitted, an email confirmation will be sent to your colleagues. We will be making individual paper conversion requests available later in November.
ISA is a large and complex meeting, made even more so by balancing in-person and virtual components. As a result, the program and its scheduling has to be finalized months in advance. We recommend that participants initiate any conversion/rescheduling requests as soon as possible (as it increases the likelihood that we will be able to accommodate the request).
