2020 NCFR Annual Conference

Family Expansions, Expanding Families: Contouring Family Science’s Negative Spaces

November 11, 2020 – November 14, 2020


Conference Update: Due to challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, NCFR's focus at this time is on developing a virtual conference to take place during the scheduled conference week in November. We are working to open registration for a virtual conference option by mid-June 2020.

We know our conference attendees truly value and enjoy connecting in person at the NCFR conference. NCFR is committed to facilitating opportunities for networking and connection, including in a virtual setting. A virtual NCFR conference would provide as much academic content as an in-person conference, including real-time discussions and interaction. Our aim is to ensure that the important work family scholars and professionals are producing can still be presented, discussed, and shared widely among the Family Science community.

NCFR continues to closely monitor news and recommendations regarding COVID-19, and we will continue to adjust plans as necessary to ensure the health and well-being of our members and attendees. We will continue to post and disseminate additional conference updates. Find more NCFR resources here related to COVID-19.
