The IFERA 2021 Conference will be the 21st edition of our annual meeting, but in an entirely virtual innovative format. Please get ready for:
THE IFERA 2021 ANNUAL CONFERENCE
from June 7 to July 11, 2021
Featuring the first ever
FAMILY BUSINESS FESTIVAL
Based on the insights gained from last year’s IFERA conference, in addition to several other virtual events we attended, we concluded that transposing a physical conference to a virtual format was a temporary, but suboptimal solution. We thus created an entirely new format to guarantee an outstanding experience by leveraging the interactive features of a virtual environment and combining them with the unique strengths of our community. Some of the advantages of a virtual format are:
FLEXIBILITY \ PERSONALIZED SCHEDULES \ ON DEMAND CONTENTS \ TIME MANAGEMENT
Nobody is expecting delegates to spend full days in front of a screen. Therefore, the conference will be longer, sessions will be more distributed, and content will always be available on-demand even after the live conference will end.
IFERA 2021 will feature a “festival-style” 6 weeks / 24 hours access to relevant sessions and contents including various pre conference activities, the actual live conference, and follow-on post conference engagements.
The event will be organized in four main tracks:
Paper discussion sessions will last 1.5 hours and will feature three full papers or four work in progress papers. To allow for more discussion time, all paper presentations will be pre-recorded and will always be available before, during and after the live conference to registered attendees. The chair of the session will also act as a discussant, providing valuable comments and feedbacks to authors and moderating the discussion throughout.
Please note that the conference registration requires an active 2021 IFERA membership (starting April 1st 2021: student & emeritus members 125 EURO, regular members 225 EURO). More info on our membership plans can be found here
