This weekend, IISE members and presenters, professionals and students, will log on for our first virtual version of the IISE Annual Conference & Expo. There’s still time to sign up before Friday’s deadline. Just as with an in-person Annual Conference, you’ll find hundreds of presentations, speakers and panels discussing a myriad ISE topics and sharing ideas and innovation, plus a virtual Exhibit Hall with products and services from our partners. We’ll all be there and I’d like to know what you think of the speakers and content; if you visit a session you particularly liked or have any other comments, drop me a line on Connect or at firstname.lastname@example.org and we may include it in our coverage in ISE magazine.
Of course, we were originally scheduled to gather in New Orleans, first in the spring and then under a Halloween full moon, which would have been fun. Since we can’t do so just yet, IISE member and New Orleans resident Casey Spansel shared some photos of the culture and beauty of her hometown, seen below. The good news is we still plan to be back in the Big Easy next year: The Applied Ergonomics Conference is scheduled for March 22-25, 2021, at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. I’m sure Casey and her fellow NOLA residents will make sure there are plenty of beignets, jambalaya and jazz waiting for us then.
