What’s New in 2023?

Excited about CIES 2023?

We are thrilled by the many new ideas and initiatives proposed and discussed by our Advisory Board, Planning Committee, and Organizing Committee, in addition to those that have been offered by CIES members and beyond.

1. Empowering Your Participation as a Reviewer

Your participation at CIES 2023 can be further enhanced by actively serving as a volunteer peer reviewer. The mechanism of blind peer-review is full of opportunities that are both collaborative and professional, and beneficial for exploring how research may be advanced and enhanced in effective and unique ways. You can support the work of the Society by signing up as a volunteer peer reviewer when you submit your proposal through our Online Submission system.

The success of CIES 2023 relies crucially on the important input from each and every one of you!

2. Extending Meeting Dates to February 14-22, 2023

Due to the outbreak of a global pandemic in 2019, CIES annual meetings shifted from on-site to online in 2020 and 2021. The global pandemic remains ongoing and there is no way for conference organizers to accurately predict the impact on our annual meetings. Based on the latest available information and what we have learned from the annual meetings since 2020, we have extended the conference to February 14-22, 2023 from our original schedule. As our Society goes through shifts reflecting broader society, we must continue to adapt and explore options for annual meetings in the years to come.

3. On-site Days (Feb 18-22) and Online Days (14-15)

CIES 2023 is taking an alternative approach by having an on-site meeting with online components, i.e., two online days (February 14th and 15th) followed by five on-site days (February 18th-22nd), with two days in between to allow for travel to Washington, D.C. and for the organizers to shift from the online component to the on-site component.

Those registered to attend the five on-site days of CIES 2023 in Washington, D.C. will have access to all on-site and online sessions February 14-22. Those registered to attend the two online days of CIES 2023 will have access only to those sessions on February 14-15 in the Online Meeting Hub, in addition to key plenary sessions such as the Presidential Address, Invited Keynote Talks and other plenary sessions, and the State of Society, etc., which are all scheduled on February 18-22.

4. The Meeting Break

The meeting break is designed not only as a break for all participants, but as a necessary transition for those who plan to first enjoy the two online days and right after that travel to Washington, D.C. for the five on-site days. The organizing team also needs time to move over to Washington, D.C. right after their organizing work first for the two online days, otherwise our costs will be increased significantly if the team has to work in the meeting hotel to organize both on-site and online days for CIES 2023.
