ICFA 42 “Climate Change and the Anthropocene”

March 18–21, 2021 @ Online

The IAFA is aware of the power (and life) disruptions across much of
Texas and in other parts of the United States, and we will make
exceptions for submitting presentations as needed. Because our
deadline was created to ensure that everyone is able to view the
presentations before the conference, we ask that any member who can
meet the original deadline (which is February 23, 2021) to please do

Once accepted, the author may choose to present in one of the following formats:
● Text document
Format: PDF; maximum length: 1800 words
● PowerPoint slideshow with audio commentary
Format: PPTX or MP4; length: 10–15 minutes
● Prezi presentation with audio commentary
Format: any exportable Prezi format; length: 10–15 minutes
● Video recording
Format: MP4; length: 10–15 minutes

Links to tutorials about creating PowerPoint and Prezi slideshows with audio commentary are available at IAFA’s YouTube account ( For those new to Zoom, we have linked to short official Zoom tutorials. Information regarding presentation uploads, including file naming protocols, is available at “Upload Files for ICFA 42,” linked below.

Please upload your presentation (in any of the above formats) to the conference Dropbox ( The process is easy: click the link, choose the presentation file, and hit Upload. A Dropbox account is not required to upload. You will need to drop your file by February 23, 2021.

The conference participants will have almost three weeks (March 1–18, 2021) to read, view, or otherwise peruse and become familiar with the presentations.

The Zoom sessions during the conference will be limited to Q&A. Time limitations mean that authors will not be allowed to summarize the papers, but we envision plenty of time for real-time discussions.
