Virtual events bring the experience of an in-person conference to your personal computer, so just like an in-person meeting, you have the freedom to pick the sessions you attend. But participating in the event in its entirety—the plenary, concurrent sessions, and professional track—will help you to get the most out of the experience.

Yes! Speaker presentations will be available on the Summit platform following each session for one year.

The iPoster Gallery will be available for viewing on the WFH Virtual Summit platform for the duration of the event (June 14-19, 2020), and for one year thereafter at under Poster Gallery.

The WFH is pleased to announce that the abstract book is now available, for free access view it here. We would like to thank all those who submitted an abstract and the reviewers who took their time to consider every submission.

As the list of participants will not be shared this time, we encourage you to interact with other participants virtually through the Communications Center under My Profile or through The Lounge. The Lounge is a great place to communicate and network with attendees, speakers, and sponsors.

This year, the WFH has decided to put together a special video tribute to acknowledge and celebrate the 2020 award winners. These videos will be released daily during the 2020 WFH Virtual Summit. Visit the WFH booth for more information.
