Virtual Agenda-at-a-Glance

NCER 2021 will be conducted on the Zoom virtual platform and will be spread over a two-week period to minimize screen-time fatigue and to allow the maximum number of presentations on restoration science. The program will consist of four plenary sessions, a regional plenary, up to 45 concurrent sessions, posters and two formal poster sessions, and some fun and interactive networking events.

All sessions will be recorded and published on the NCER web site and paid registrants will receive password protected and on-demand access for one year. We expect to keep registration fees lower than an in-person conference, but you should be aware that a successful virtual program of this scope and size requires significant coordination and technical support behind the scenes so there are still substantial costs associated with producing a virtual NCER. Online registration will open June 1.

We look forward to your participation and appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to bring NCER to you in a virtual format. Be sure to join us!
