The IASL 2021 Conference Committee is diligently working to accommodate presenters and attendees from various time zones globally. All live-streamed sessions will be recorded and made available to registrants for on-demand viewing during the conference and will remain accessible through EventMobi for a designated period of time following the conclusion of the event (at which time all the conference proceedings will be archived accordingly).


**The official 2021 program is still being finalized so the agenda below is meant to only serve as a general overview of the conference schedule for each date. Please check back often for updated information about speakers and specific times (all times listed for Central Standard Time - CST/UTC-5).**
