2023 Hybrid Conference

New Look at Careers in a Rapidly Changing World

The first week, May 16-20, consists of 2 full conference days (May 17 and 18).  On May 16 and May 19 we have provided optional extras.  Those in a hurry are welcome to attend only the regular part of the conference, and those who want to fully enjoy Kazakhstan are invited to attend all 4 days.  A tour of Almaty is scheduled for the afternoon of May 19 and all day on May 20 so that you can visit another part of this vast country and learn more about the variety of landscape and culture.

On May 22, 24, and 26, we will hold the Presentations.  All presentations will be virtual.  These presentations are scheduled during 5 hours each of those 3 days.  This means you will have time during the rest of each day and on the days between to take care of your normal duties.  Six simultaneous presentations are offered at each time, so you can choose the topics that are most relevant to you.  If you wish to learn from more than one presentation held at the same time, the recordings will be available for 3 months after the conference.

Check out our 2023 Conference page for more information.
