Dear Colleagues,

We continue to monitor the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak and the challenges it poses to the conference. 

While we hope that we won’t have to cancel the conference, we recognize that changes are a possibility.

We are striving to balance making an informed decision (see how things go over the next month) with giving our participants, partners and speakers enough time to plan.

Take care of yourselves and follow our updates.
