Join us from around the world. UR2020 will be fully virtual. This means that we can be more global than we’ve ever been! The Main Event, which will include keynotes, plenaries, Ignites, and other exciting surprises, will take place primarily on Tuesday, December 1, at a time period to be determined. Other plenaries will also be featured on Wednesday, Dec. 2 and Thursday, Dec. 3.

Technical Sessions and Focus Day Events are now combined as “Community Sessions”. Each Community Session will be scheduled in 55-minute blocks in one of the following time periods during the course of UR2020:  

  1. 02:00 – 05:00 UTC (business hours for East Asia, the Pacific)
