With much input from our members and colleagues, we have made the decision to host ISA Midwest online this year. We are still investigating online formats, and the conference plan is still taking shape. I will be in touch about programming information, including time slots and panels, once the submission window has closed. The conference will be held in US Central Time. We are currently accepting proposals for papers, panels, and now posters! The deadline for submissions remains July 24, 2020.

The ISA-Midwest Board has been in conversation about the best path forward for our region; we listened to your feedback and reached out to past leadership of the region as well. After careful consideration, our conclusion is that we will hold the 2020 ISA-Midwest on a virtual platform.
We are aware that there are, and will be, significant health concerns, as well as financial constraints on travel. This is a much difficult decision -and, a disappointment for many of us; nonetheless, it is a prudent and socially responsible decision at this time. As difficult as this decision is, it gives us a clear direction in planning the event -and, a peace of mind as we all schedule the fall.
Our program chair Dr. Leah Windsor, and the Board, will make every effort to make the 2020 ISA-Midwest a meaningful experience. Dr. Windsor will reach out with more information as the program comes into shape. The ISA-Midwest is a successful event because of its attendees; we look forward to a joint effort and rely on our attendees in making it another successful event this November as well.
In conclusion, this is a collaborative decision that benefited from your participation in the survey, and the thoughtful insights provided by our colleagues. As the region’s president, I take ownership of this tough decision [and, hope very much that come November this will appear unnecessary]. We look forward to your proposals and to the ISA-Midwest 2020; the deadline for submission is July 24th.
