The in-person conference has now been cancelled in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are currently considering alternative options, including a potential virtual conference. Watch this space for updates.

IISD Experimental Lakes Area—the world's freshwater laboratory—is proud to present IAGLR's 63rd Annual Conference, 2020: Focusing on the Future, in Winnipeg, Canada.

Be sure to mark it in your calendars from June 8 to 12, 2020.

Scientists from across the globe will gather in the heart of North America for IAGLR's 63rd Annual Conference on Great Lakes Research. Hosted by IISD Experimental Lakes Area, the conference will feature four days of scientific sessions, speakers and discussions centred around the theme 2020: Focusing on the Future. 

Attendees will also have the opportunity to visit the IISD-ELA research station and learn about its approach to using whole-lake experiments to inform large lake management and policy.
