Like many other organizations, the 83rd annual ASIS&T meeting will be virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These new and unusual times have called us all to be resilient in ways we never expected.

The meeting is scheduled for October 22-November 1, 2020 and will be held virtually rather than face-to-face in order to ensure the health and safety of members, staff, and the public. The technology conference on the theme: “Information for a Sustainable World: Addressing Society’s Grand Challenges”.
