WSSA's 2020 virtual conference, "2020 Juried Proceedings of the Western Social Science Association", went live on June 18, 2020.

Individual passwords were sent to all registered participants, along with the URL for the conference site, on June 18, 19, 20, and 21.  Those passwords enable the participants to view the entire site and to comment on all of the presentations.  The site will remain open only to registered participants through September 30, 2020.  

The site will be opened to public viewing on October 1, 2020, at which time the comment function will be disabled.  The public will be able to view the site, and to view all comments made through September 30, 2020, but will not be able to post new comments.  The site will remain open to public viewing for 1 year, through September 30, 2021.

Many WSSA members donated their expected refunds, from their registration for the in-person conference, to help defray the expenses caused by converting an in-person conference to a virtual format.  The names of those donors, and their photos, are displayed in the lower half of the landing page of the virtual conference.  WSSA is very grateful to those donors; their donations were critical in allowing the no-money-at-the-time Association to bring you the virtual conference.
