FEBRUARY 15 - 18, 2021
The Virtual Conference will be engaging and interactive. The virtual platform allows direct contact and messaging among meeting attendees, Q&A with presenters, and opportunities to meet colleagues working on similar topics and challenges. Attendees will even be able to strike up video conversations with exhibitors and sponsors in our Virtual Exhibit Hall or visit the Art-of-Range Gallery.
As in past SRM Annual Meetings, there will be hundreds of oral and poster presentations, symposia and workshops. With the virtual platform, presentations will be recorded, made available within minutes and can be viewed any time after the session, you won’t miss a thing! Attendees can interact with presenters during scheduled sessions or post questions for speakers after the presentation. Plus, those who register for the meeting will be able to revisit presentations years after the meeting is over.
Presentations and conversations will examine topics including rangeland restoration, monitoring, and education, wildlife management, livestock management and new technologies for rangeland conservation. This meeting will include more than 250 oral and poster presentations plus 16 symposia and 10 workshops. The virtual format also allows our members from across the globe to join us virtually from Australia, Bolivia, New Zealand, South Africa, Mongolia, and Uzbekistan.
