COVID-19 Workshop Planned for 2021 Symposium

COVID-19 has impacted us all, and a special workshop on the topic is being planned for the 2021 ESS Symposium. Led by Dr. Craig Wood, the workshop will focus on COVID-19’s impact, challenges, successes, and future on research, teaching, and extension. If you have success stories, or ideas on how to handle teaching, extension, and research efforts during this time, please consider being a part of this workshop by completing this form. The deadline for the specific COVID-19 workshop submissions is November 24, 2020, which is different from the general workshop submission deadline of March 5, 2021. Details regarding the general workshop submissions are expected in November.
