Registration for the IRG52 Webinar will be provided in due course.
As the COVID-19 situation is still affecting global travel, the IRG52 annual scientific conference planned for Numazu, Japan will not take place in person this year. For the second year in a row we will certainly miss the ambient atmosphere of friendliness, friendship, scientific communication and networking. The IRG EC is working with the Japan Local Organizing Committee on future options for Japan to organize the IRG meeting in the coming years since they could not do so this year. When this is resolved we will advise the IRG membership.
In lieu of the canceled IRG52 meeting we will meet online, and we are excited to be hosting another webinar building on the successes of the previous two webinars. The IRG52 Webinar will take place during November 1-2. We welcome submissions from any of the IRG subject areas. The deadline for papers to be submitted to the Secretariat is August 1. Authors will be notified of acceptance in the webinar by September 15. Presentations of accepted papers will be due October 15. We will collect the presentations ahead of time to avoid any technical delays during the webinar. We are aiming to have approximately 15 presentations. While we will do our best to accommodate all submissions, some papers may need to be deferred to next year’s meeting in Bled.
While the webinar will take place over November 1-2, the exact times will be announced soon. The IRG EC recognizes that attendance at our previous webinars has not been easy for all time zones. As a result, the upcoming webinar will have two sessions at different times that will allow people from any time zone to participate in at least one session at a reasonable time of day
Information on registration will be provided in due course
