Virtual Venue

All presentations and technical sessions will be held ONLINE via Zoom Web Conferencing hosted by  Western Kentucky University (WKU), August 18-20, 2020.

Participants will need to create a free Zoom account ( using the same email address used during registration. 

Registrants will be sent links (with instructions) to attend all technical presentations, poster session, virtual field trips, and pre-selected interactive workshops. For current registrants, we will be in touch if your workshop selections are no longer available. 

Abstracts, posters, select technical presentations, and films will be made available online August 11 to registrants only. We hope participants will preview these resources and prepare questions or other comments to engage with presenters, facilitators, and other attendees during the live sessions. 

The Planning Committee will be in touch with all authors, trip leaders, and workshop facilitators to schedule practice sessions as well as provide additional guidelines and tips for online presentations. You can also find detailed instructions about how to download and use Zoom from Western Kentucky University’s Information Technology Knowledge Base.
