Most of the presentations and posters will remain here on the 61st Annual Meeting website for an extended viewing period through January 31. The website will remain available to register, log in, view presentations and posters, and comment and reply in the discussion areas. A few contributions were removed on Tuesday, January 12, at the authors' request.

61st ANNUAL MEETING

This year's IAS Annual Meeting is entirely online, with new features and many more presentations than before. The Presentations and Posters list and Schedule are open to all visitors. To actually view and discuss the presentations, posters, and live events in a relatively secure environment, all participants must register using the Meeting Registration Form and log in to the meeting from January 2 through January 10. There is no fee. Details and instructions are below.

ABOUT THE MEETING

Streaming video talks and posters, with areas for written comments and replies, will be available to view at any time from the start of early viewing on January 2, 2021, through the end of the Meeting on January 10. In addition, the presenters will participate in live, scheduled discussions, most with four authors of intersecting presentations, with all Meeting participants able to submit live comments and questions. The Keynote Talk and a separate live round table discussion by a panel of scholars will address Afro-Andean themes, as will 7 of the 33 presentations, 3 of the 7 posters, and several of the live discussions.
