Welcome to the Irish Ecological Association's Virtual Conference 2021

7-8th January 2021 we are hosting an online conference on this website. You can use this site to register and submit abstracts for the conference. Once the conference goes live you can find all the Zoom links on this website. All you need to access the conference are your log in details you created when you registered for the conference.

Presenters will be asked to be available on the day of the conference to present their work and for Q&A sessions. These sessions will occur over Zoom, so do ensure that you have access to Zoom, along with a webcam and microphone, before you submit an abstract.

We will then ask for talks and posters to be uploaded in advance, the deadline to do so will be 18th December 2020. This will give us time to prepare uploading the documents so they are ready for the days of the conference.

We look forward to connecting with you online!
