2021 Virtual Annual Meeting of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology (SICB)
SICB 2021 will be a Virtual Annual Meeting for all attendees as it will be fully inclusive of all conference activities. SICB 2021 will take place from January 3 to February 28, 2021.
As we move forward in this new format, our guiding principles are (1) to capture the spirit, scientific value, and networking value of our in-person meetings, (2) to embrace this opportunity to broaden the reach of SICB and make our community more accessible and inclusive for all scientists and students, and (3) to offer many ways to participate in the meeting at your own pace and schedule over an extended period during January and February. Different from many other virtual conferences, our aim for extending the conference period over two months is to reduce the stress and fatigue brought on by too much screen time, which many of us are experiencing. This format allows attendees to view scientific content at their leisure, and provides a schedule with less overlap of multiple events of interest.
