2020 Posters

The 2020 posters are now online. The conference will not hold a virtual poster session this year, but we encourage you to engage with poster authors directly and to stay in touch with the community and conference via the ARL-Assess email group and by using #LAC20 on Twitter.

Workshops

The conference will not offer workshops this year, due to the difficulty of running interactive, participatory workshops in an online setting, and with the recognition that it is likely that many potential attendees are already experiencing fatigue from extended online work amidst challenging work situations.

To acknowledge the accepted workshops and the significant work authors put into their proposals, we are highlighting their work and encourage them to offer these programs in other venues.
