The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Board of Directors recently announced that due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 IES Annual Conference has been canceled and will be moving to a virtual setting for the safety of its members, staff, supporters, vendors and volunteers. Originally scheduled for August 6-8 in New Orleans, the online event will now take place from August 24-28 and August 31 through September 4, with two blocks of sessions each day.
Cost of registration is $249 for members and $349 for non-member, with reduced rates for emerging professionals (EPs) and student members. Official times are to be determined, and by providing a schedule that that offers content across two weeks, IES hopes registrants will be able to attend all sessions and not have to choose between tracks.
