After careful deliberation, the ISSW 2020 organization committee has made the difficult decision to postpone the conference by one year, due to the many uncertainties presented by the Covid-19 pandemic. ISSW 2020 is now scheduled for October 3 – 8, 2021, in Fernie, BC, Canada. We wanted to get this news out to you as soon as possible. We will be changing the information on the website, the logo, and other communication material over the next few days.
While we are all disappointed by this development, we know it is the right thing to do at this time. The health and safety of the conference delegates, our event volunteers, and our host community is our top priority.
Our commitment to the conference and its goals remains strong and we hope all of you will be able to adjust your schedules to suit this new date. If you have any questions, please first check this FAQ page. If you do not find the answers you need, please do not hesitate to contact us.
