New Delhi, Mar 8 (PTI) Despite 'Zoom fatigue' and the inability to simulate in-person networking with colleagues, scientists want conferences to be held virtually even after the COVID-19 pandemic is over, citing ease of attending from anywhere in the world and low carbon footprint among its many perks.

It has been a year since the American Physical Society (APS)cancelled its meeting just days before it was to begin in Denver, US, on March 2, last year due to the situation created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
