In addition to the live presentations above, 1,428 papers from scholars representing every region of the world have been accepted for presentation. In order to accommodate multiple time zones and the complexity of organizing the presentation of 1,428 papers, the organizers decided that papers will be pre-recorded in sessions of four with live scheduled Q&A during the week. Once recorded, sessions will be available on the web site in a password-protected resource library to be accessed throughout the week.

We are very excited about this format because it allows all presenters to work around time zones and potential technical glitches to present their work while still interacting with and receiving feedback from colleagues.

At the same time, several unique software features will be available throughout the meeting including live networking rooms, chat functions, virtual booths, leaderboards tracking presentation visits and daily participation in the Congress, among other features. The Society will also present live its Frisch Medal and other awards. Finally, while we cannot visit Bocconi University and Milan in person, Bocconi University’s beautiful buildings, surrounding city and hospitality will be available virtually during the full Congress.

We have set registration fees for presenters and non-presenter attendees at rates designed to cover the costs of the software and staffing. We hope all of you will register as soon as possible (and no later than June 7 to be included in the program) and encourage your colleagues to register too at the $10 non-presenter rate.
