All are encouraged to attend whether brand new to research or highly experienced. No degree, affiliation, or anything is required to take part except to be a current IRVA member. All members are welcome.

Attendees can share research ideas, get input from other members, form their own research teams, present, and discuss current RV-related research and get involved in each other's projects. Seasoned researchers who would care to share their expertise are very welcome.
