The organizers of iConference 2021 are pleased to announce that this year’s iConference will take place on the SCOOCS virtual conference platform. SCOOCS is a relatively new and dynamic online venue, and the conference organizers were impressed with its ability to empower presenters and enable attendees to be more active and connected.
For a preview of the platform, registered participants can visit our Virtual Participation Guidelines page. There you will find a Video showcasing some of the platform’s key features, as well as links to Presentation Tips and Tricks and other resources. Additional how-to links will be added in the coming weeks.
In the weeks leading up the conference’s March 17 start date, presenters and participants will be sent instruction for creating their SCOOCS user accounts and getting started.
If you have not yet signed up for iConference 2021, there is still time to register. Standard rates are in effect through March 8; late rates apply thereafter.
