Virtual Meeting

Abstract acceptances have been sent!

10 plenary talks, 27+ concurrent sessions,
Nearly 200 presenters, 30 Digital Engagement demos and posters

The US Department of Agriculture and the Forest Service place paramount importance upon safety and public health and continue to update guidance regarding COVID-19 travel and hosted meetings with more than 50 people. Given the uncertainty around the progress of the disease and CDC community levels immediately prior to and during the event, as well as mitigations required to safely host an in-person event, the organizers of the 2022 FIA Science Stakeholder Meeting have made the difficult decision to transition to a fully virtual meeting. This pivot to virtual event will provide an opportunity for enhanced scientific and technical exchange across a broader community in this time of uncertainty. We ask for your patience as we begin to finalize a conference program integrating novel capabilities across a virtual platform.

Due to the pivot to a virtual event we will extend the meeting across 4 days to make them shorter. Please block your calendars from 10 am ET to 4 pm ET Nov. 14-17. Concurrent sessions will take place between 12 pm ET and 4 pm ET each day. The final agenda will be shared via our virtual platform in the coming weeks, and we ask that you be prepared to create your profile and start participating. We understand that missing the in-person aspect of this meeting is a disappointment, and we are going to help people connect and engage with friends and colleagues, both new and old, in several different types of breakout/networking sessions that will be intermixed into the agenda. Again, thanks for your patience as we finalize the agenda.

We look forward to sharing additional information regarding the agenda, registration, presentation guidelines, and more in the coming weeks but this is what we can share currently. Talks will be limited to fifteen minutes including questions, registration will be free, and pre-recorded talks will be able to be accommodated (if you opt for this please plan to attend for the Q&A).
