Now is the Time to Submit Your Research Abstract for the 2021 Member Conference
Although it is going to be virtual, we are working hard to make the Conference as informative and fun as a face to face event. Time is critical at this point, so we ask that you get it ready now. We plan to open the submission portal on December 1st.
This whole process is all new to the IAPRI staff, being it is our first attempt to host a conference. So please assist us by meeting our deadlines. Since this is a Member Conference, all submitters must be affiliated with a member institution or corporation. You must have access via member login to the IAPRI website. If you need to be added as an additional contact at your member institute, contact Ed Church at sg@iapri
.org with your contact information.
