LERC2020 Moves to Virtual Conference
June 28, 2020
We continue to monitor the evolving factors related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, particularly with regard to our 2nd International Conference on Language Education and Research. The term “second wave” has no agreed-upon scientific definition. It can mean anything from localised spikes in infection to a full-blown national crisis, and some experts avoid it for this reason. Though, fear of a second wave of infections now hangs over countries that have managed to stamp out the disease. Due to such developments, it is likely that gatherings in conferences might be prohibited in autumn, which has contributed to our decision to move LERC2020 completely online on October 3rd and 4th, 2020. We made this decision in response to the many requests from our community asking that in the absence of a face to face event, that we hold an online event. We look forward to having you join us for this fully online event, and will be reaching out with complete details and the updated program shortly.
As we move LERC2020 completely online, we look forward to offering you the same vibrant programming, impactful networking, and opportunities to reflect and connect over the emerging and salient topics in our field. The virtual conference will include our regular offerings and opportunities for engagement, including sessions, workshops and poster presentations, keynotes, and space to connect with sponsors, exhibitors, and educators from across the globe. In addition to participating in the live event, all attendees will have access to on-demand recordings for one (1) year. Moving our face-to-face conference to a fully online format presents us with the unique opportunity to spotlight the best of what the online modality affords – meaningful collaboration and the ability to reflect and connect with colleagues around the world. We hope that you will join us for this reimagined event, and celebrate our collective resilience and dedication to forging connections without boundaries.
We look forward to welcoming you to the LERC2020 Virtual Conference in October, and we are here to help you however we can with questions and requests for support. Please feel free to reach out to us with requests related to LERC2020 at email@example.com.
