"Virtual" Conference Attendance

We hope that everyone can join us in Kalamazoo. For those who are unable to travel, we will also be offering a paid option to attend the conference via Zoom this year. Beyond our normal live video stream, this option will provide extended coverage of the conference (e.g. sponsor sessions will be included), as well as the ability to remotely present a paper.

We'll be opening registration for the virtual conference attendance option in August. To register for the virtual conference, use the online registration page. For the "Registration Fee" option, select "Virtual (via Zoom)". There is a $125 charge for this virtual option, and you will receive links to join the Zoom meeting shortly before the conference begins. We will have people at the conference to relay questions asked in the Zoom chat and/or the ability to show your video+audio to in-person attendees if you are presenting a paper remotely. Like normal conference registration, "virtual" attendance is eligible for the paper credit discount.

You can review the Virtual Conference Schedule for a list of events which are included in the virtual conference.

Live stream from conference

In addition to the paid Zoom option, we will continue to offer our free live video and audio stream of selected events during the conference at:

The live streams will also be available on our YouTube channel.

The live stream will include invited speakers, paper sessions, panel discussions, the banquet, and business meeting. It is a one-way stream, so if you'd like to virtually present a paper, you'll want to use the "virtual" attendance option instead. The Live Stream Schedule contains a a list of events which will be streamed.


Social media

You can also follow posts from conference attendees using the #glpa2021 hashtag on Twitter and Facebook.
