ISMRM & SMRT Virtual Conference & Exhibition 2020

Updated: Aug 20

This year the ISMRM & SMRT Conference has gone virtual due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The silver lining of this new conference format is the ability for researchers to stream content at their convenience. Often researchers do not get the chance to attend meetings like this and integrate with each other. There are over 360 educational courses available and 180 hours of content.


Although the official conference dates are August 8-14 (Live Q&A Sessions), attendees are expected to take time two weeks beforehand to view talks and posters. Talks will not run during the Live Q&A sessions. "The goal is for the session speakers to answer questions and interreact with the attendees, as mediated by the moderators."


Listen to ISMRM and SMRT Program Chairs discuss the virtual conference format below:
