April 18-22, 2022 - Minneapolis

Virtual

CIES 2022 will plan for a virtual extension of the conference in addition to its physical location in Minneapolis, MN. Having had two fully virtual conferences in 2020 and 2021, navigating this new space of a hybrid conference will be different. While some experiences will be limited to either only in-person attendees or only virtual attendees, our hope is that both modalities will provide people a successful conference experience. More information on both components are forthcoming.

PLEASE NOTE:

 I’m getting ready to submit my Formal Paper Presentation (Individual Submission) proposal, how will on site and virtual selections be grouped into panels?

For our hybrid conference, individual papers will be grouped with other individual papers to form panels.  If you select “ON SITE” you will be grouped with other “ON SITE” papers and we will schedule your session for the conference hotel.  If you select one of the two Pajama Panels (virtual), you will be grouped with similar papers and will be scheduled to present virtually.  These created panels will be either on site or virtual and will not be mixed.  Please also be aware that all on site sessions will only be limited to on site audience members.

We’re getting ready to submit our Formal Panel Presentation (Group Submission) proposal, what are our presentation options?

For our hybrid conference, if you are proposing a panel, the following options are available:

  1. You and your panelists can all be on site, and if you select “ON SITE” we will schedule your session at the conference hotel.
  2. You and your panelists can all be virtual and you can select one of the two Pajama Panel slots and you will be scheduled virtually.
  3. Some panelists are on site and others are virtual – in this case, the panel organizer will be responsible for figuring out how to virtually include any panelists who are not on site. It will be up to the panel organizer to use their own zoom account to bring in panelists as might have been the case in prior years at conferences.It is unfortunately too expensive for us to provide technical support to such mixed panels. Please also be aware that all on site sessions will only be limited to on site audience members.

I’m getting ready to submit my Refereed Round-Table Presentation (Individual Submission) proposal, how will on site and virtual selections be grouped?

For our hybrid conference, individual papers for Round-Tables will be grouped with other individual papers.  If you select “ON SITE” you will be grouped with other “ON SITE” papers.  If you select one of the two Pajama Panels (virtual), you will be grouped with similar papers and will be scheduled to present virtually. These created panels will be either on site or virtual and will not be mixed.  Please also be aware that all on site sessions will only be limited to on site audience members.
