2020 ASEEES Virtual Convention Program Schedule Now Available

The new schedule for the 2020 ASEEES Virtual Convention is now complete. We are delighted that we have a full schedule with over 600 sessions. 

The revised dates of the convention are: November 5 – 8 and November 14 – 15. Dates were extended to limit the number of concurrent sessions.  Session times have also been shortened to one hour and 30 minutes to help reduce “Zoom burn-out”. The Convention schedule is in Eastern Standard Time (EST).

You can also view the entire convention schedule grid under “Program Calendar” in the left navigation bar. The schedule does not include all ancillary events at this time.

Even if you withdrew from the convention, we ask that you check the program to make sure your name does not appear. If you see your name in the program, please use the withdrawal form below to let us know of the error.

Regarding the convention schedule, we ask for your maximum flexibility. Scheduling was based heavily on time-zone considerations that we gathered in the recent participation survey.  We will accept rescheduling requests for religious observations and consider changes where there are time-zone concerns.  Requests for rescheduling will be accepted via change request form below.  Please do not email us with scheduling change requests.  

Keep in mind that pre-recording your presentation is an option whether or not you can be present during the session.  All sessions (unless refused by the session members) will be recorded and made available for future viewing by convention attendees.
