The Association for Computing Machinery, working with an internal task force, has produced a guide for putting together virtual conferences, complete with a list of software options and resourcing strategies.
A lot of organizations are having to dip into the pool of virtual conferences for the first time. And as a result, they may feel a little lost about what to do.
Fortunately, a fellow association has a new tool to help. The Association for Computing Machinery recently released a guide, through its presidential task force, about best practices for setting up virtual conferences. Organized by ACM President Cherri M. Pancake, Virtual Conferences: A Guide to Best Practices aims to help organizers within the ACM community and beyond it to make sense of what may be a brand-new approach to organizing meetings for them.
