VfS Annual Conference 2020: Virtual Conference

VfS Annual Conference 2020: Virtual Conference

 

Due to continuing concerns about COVID-19, we unfortunately had to decide to cancel the physical conference at the University of Cologne, but will instead hold a fully virtual annual conference. We look forward to the new challenges and opportunities of bringing together presenters of the research papers, experts on the core topic of gender economics, colleagues and interested listeners for the first time on a virtual conference platform. Even though we will miss the personal encounter, there will still be the possibility to talk and network via chat rooms.

 

The virtual conference will still take place on September 27 to 30, as originally planned. The registration fee will be substantially reduced to 80€/40€ for VfS members and 137€/72€ for new members. Conference registration will still be required for all attendees and speakers. We will livestream the keynotes and sessions, and provide ample opportunities for interactions, hopefully making the virtual conference rewarding for both presenters and attendees. All participants must register for the conference to gain access to the virtual meeting rooms. Only individuals with confirmed registration will be able to view the presentations.
