Trans/Inter/Cross: A Symposium on the Fantastic Between Genres, Media, and Cultures

October 1-3, 2021


The first October Conference will be be a "face to face" symposium at the Marriott Orlando Airport Lakeside.


This serves as a rider to the IAFA Code of Conduct Policy and is in effect for the 2021 Symposium to take place at the Orlando Airport Marriott Lakeside October 1-3, 2021.  Please note that this is a list of requests and guidelines meant to be considered in conjunction with the existing IAFA Code of Conduct.  All policies as outlined in the IAFA Code of Conduct are in force during the symposium.


1. IAFA recommends that you take a Covid test 72 hours prior to traveling.

2.  Because your health and that of those around you are important to us, in accordance with CDC Guidelines, IAFA respectfully requests that attendees wear masks in all indoor spaces used by IAFA during the symposium.

3.  If at any point you are feeling ill, please do not come into the public spaces of the hotel.  The hotel front desk can assist you in securing transportation to a Covid testing site or other emergency care location.

4.  Maintain a safe social distance from all other attendees (unless permission to come closer has specifically been granted), especially when indoors.  Violating the safe social distance requirement may result in a charge of harassment, which will be handled as outlined in the IAFA Code of Conduct procedure.

5.  Chairs in session rooms are set three feet apart.  Please do not move them closer together.

6.  Do not harass or intimidate any attendee or hotel employee for their views or actions on masking or vaccination.  Any action of this kind will be considered harassment under the terms of the IAFA Code of Conduct and a violation will be handled as detailed in that document.


Cancellation Policy: We will accept cancellations with refunds until September 5, but because we have to give guarantees to the hotel, we unfortunately cannot refund cancellations after that date.
