About this Event

The International 'Virtu-Wool' Research Conference

As a lead-in to the international Wool Research Conference, which has been postponed until March 2021 at the earliest, we have decided to host an International 'Virtu-Wool' Research Conference online 26th and 27th August 2020.

Great news! The deadline for abstracts has been extended until the 31st July, please email IWRC20@agresearch.co.nz for the abstract template and any further information.

We hope that you will take the opportunity to support global wool and related research by participating. It is our intention to give conference participants the best experience possible through the use of a specialised online conference hosting platform. Conference sessions will be scheduled at times of the day that will maximise the number of international attendees that can participate.

This does not replace the physical conference, and we are still looking forward to seeing many of you in New Zealand when that is possible. But many of you will have had your plans to present your research at conferences disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, so this is your opportunity to promote your work, and learn about the work of others… all from the comfort of your home or office!

Upon acceptance of your abstract you will be asked to prepare an extended abstract that can be compiled into the conference proceedings.

How do I get into the Virtu-Wool Conference?

Upon registration you will recieve a confirmation email from Eventbrite. In it you will find a button that will lead you to a link to the conference. We will also send you a remo link the day before the conference.

Where is the Virtu-Wool Conference being hosted?

We are excited to be using the sensational networking platform Remo!

Remo is a lot different to the meeting and webinar software you may be familiar with. Remo offers an awesome capacity for live networking and sharing presentations.

We chose it, because the easy to use platform was designed from the ground-up to give an experience as close as possible to being at a physical conference. Check out the Remo website(https://remo.co/)
