Virtual Conversion Options for ISA 2022

We know that many of you have a range of questions regarding the upcoming 2022 Nashville ISA convention.  As we have already announced, ISA is working on expanding its virtual capacity for Nashville and we expect to have the ability to convert a limited number of existing in-personal panels and roundtables into virtual sessions. As a result, please read the following completely and carefully.

To implement these potential program changes, later this month we will be unveiling a new tool that will allow panelists to easily coordinate amongst themselves and initiate the request for panel conversion into a virtual setting.  More details about this capability within ISAnet will be provided when that process is opened for use.  

Please note that two types of potential switches will be possible:

  • Shifting an entire panel to virtual - While both in-person and virtual presentations are possible for Nashville, all participants from a single session will need to participate in the same type of format.  Such requests for conversion to virtual and/or rescheduling will thus need to take place at the full panel level. 
  • Individual papers, separate from their overarching panel, will also be available for conversion requests into our virtual SoundByte and Poster programs.   

Looking to get started early on your conversion/rescheduling request? Coordinate now with your panel over email so that you're ready to submit your request when the system opens.

Other items of note:

  • (What most people call) “hybrid” sessions (that is, panels/roundtables with both virtual and in-person participants) are not possible.  
  • Requestors will only be able to submit their requests to convert or reschedule their sessions once.
  • Onsite participants will be able to participate in and attend virtual sessions as well as in-person
  • 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).  The absolute HARD deadline is January 15th. We will not be able to accept or accommodate any conversion requests after January 15th, 2022.
  • Our staff and this year’s PCs’ team is small but mighty. Thanks for your patience as they move mountains to collect resources and develop new programs and systems to try to craft the best experience possible for all our participants.
