Value Diversity


Amsterdam, 6 - 8 July 2021

Dear colleagues and friends,

To all of you, you have made this 6th Virtual IASSIDD Congress a real success! We can tell by the number of registrations, attendees during live sessions, the on demand views, and the comments and interaction on the congress platform.

Many of us were used to on-site congresses and thought this is next best – since we have to deal with the pandemic. For others, the world opened up, being able to join our congress virtually meant attending a congress for the first time. We really must think, as the IASSIDD community, how we envision our future in many ways to not only Value Diversity, but Act Diversity.

Thank you all for your online presence and active participation, we can look back on an inspiring congress with a great atmosphere in the studio and at the online platform. A special thanks to Denise Kroesen and Evan Dorrestein from SUBSTREAM. They did a marvelous job in close captioning – and even simultaneous translation from Dutch into English. You did an amazing job that made our virtual congress much more inclusive!

The opening, the live sessions (roundtables, workshops and symposia) and keynote debates are recorded and will be displayed on the platform. You can find them during the congress on the platform in the “On demand 5-8 July” tile. AFTER the congress, all registered participants will receive an email with a link, to watch all recordings (including the oral & poster presentations) of the congress. This link is accessible until September 1st 2021

It was our pleasure to meet you online!

Alice Schippers,

Vice-president Europe IASSIDD, Congress chair
