The Association of Internet Researchers went completely virtual for #AoIR2020. For the first time in its history, the AoIR conference took place online, across time zones due to the COVID-19 Global Pandemic. The conference happened 27-31 October 2020.

The theme for the year’s conference was “Life (online).” Our annual conference took place online using YouTube, Zoom and AoIR2020 Town. Kyle Jarrett, AoIR 2020 Program Chair, working closely with the 2019-2021 AoIR Executive Committee planned a month long event what included specially curated themed playlists for asynchronous viewing, early publication of SPIR, and 30 live events which included group themed discussions, Keynote Q&A, Plenary Panel, social hours, pub quizzes, and karaoke.
