The world is in a state of flux and those of us organizing CIES 2022 are taking into account the issues of access, travel, environment and costs as we plan the conference. While events may result in us having to change our plans, currently, we will be planning for a face to face conference with extensive virtual components. We are contracted with the Hyatt for the conference and we are optimistic that we will be able to meet in Minneapolis in Spring 2022. We also know that for some people coming to Minneapolis might be impossible. As such, right now, we encourage you to Submit your proposal, Volunteer to review proposals, and stay tuned for more information. In the meantime, explore our onsite conference location in Minneapolis and keep an eye on our Virtual site for more information on the dual nature of the conference.
