EAGx organizers from many different countries are uniting to deliver a program of events spanning all time zones, bringing together the global EA community for a weekend of connection and reflection. The collective name for these events: EAGxVirtual 2020

Applications will be open until the beginning of the conference on Friday, 12 June. However, if you wish to be considered for mentorship programs or helping to moderate content, please apply by Monday, 18 May. (Apply using this form.)

Details on the conference

The main focus of EAGxVirtual will be one-on-one meetings between attendees, but there will also be a range of live and pre-recorded content including talks, live Q&As, speed meetings, and group discussions. We also encourage attendees to suggest and organize their own content for the week following the event; we may publicize this content on our official schedule. (If you're interested in organizing content, please email with details.)

We hope to attract a large audience of first-time and returning attendees from around the world. The conference will be suitable for anyone who has had at least minimal involvement with EA (for example, if they've read a few articles or a book). If you’re a complete newcomer, then we recommend engaging with some introductory EA content first.

We are looking forward to an inspiring conference with you!

Pay what you want

Putting on an event like this requires a lot of time and other resources. We’re putting in a lot of effort to make it a great experience — but we don’t want cost to be a barrier for anyone.

As a result, we’re running EAGxVirtual on a 'pay what you want' basis. Our suggested price is $40, with a minimum contribution of $5. If everyone who registers pays $40, we estimate we’ll cover our costs.

As in past years, we also have a 'benefactor' option that lets you pay for your own ticket and also support another attendee; this will be a suggested $80 contribution.
