Thanks for your registration for the first ever Virtual IMPS.  We hope you enjoy the conference!



The “Live” option is where you will access the live sessions themselves, which will begin on July 14.  Note that there are four rooms (Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3 and Stage 4) where the live sessions will occur.  At the time of those sessions, you can simply click within the box of the corresponding room to enter that session as an attendee. The live sessions will be run using Cisco WebEx. Cisco WebEx will be installed if you are accessing a Live Stage room for the first time.  You can also “Browse Lineup” for each Stage to see what sessions will occur there.


On Demand

With the virtual setup, a significant part of the conference experience happens before the meeting itself, so we hope you will take time to view the various presentations that have been uploaded.  Please note that the keynote, invited, and dissertation award talks will only occur live, so there will not be presentation materials posted for these talks.



The “Discover” option gives the ability to search the program for particular presentations, sessions or authors.  The sessions are arranged into “Bundles” by format type, and are organized as poster parallel sessions, oral parallel sessions, and spotlight talks. The schedule of talks can also be downloaded as a pdf.
