which was changed from in-person to virtual due to COVID-19.
The 2020 conference was originally scheduled to take place in Portland, Oregon, USA, on April 1-4, 2020.
Due to COVID-19 disruptions, WSSA was forced to pivot the in-person conference to a virtual format in early March.
The submissions portal for the virtual conference opened on May 7, 2020, and closed at midnight, CDT, June 8, 2020.
The virtual conference went live on June 18, 2020, and remained open for paid registrants to view and comment on all submissions through September 30, 2020. As of October 1, 2020, the comment function was turned off and viewing of submissions and commentary is now open to the public. Public viewing will remain open through September 30, 2021. After that, the site will be taken down.
Please note: because this changeover is being made through the conference hosting platform rather than by the WSSA itself, it may take a day or two for the password protection to be removed from the site.
