At this time, the ISSW 2020 conference will remain scheduled to proceed as planned in October 4 – 9, 2020. While many of us are used to dealing with uncertainty, the current global health crisis takes things to an unprecedented level. At times like these, it’s important for us all to be adaptable, flexible, and mindful as we assess the impact of the rapid changes taking place on the world stage.
The health and safety of the conference delegates, our event volunteers, and our host community is a priority for us. We will continue to take guidance from the World Health Organization and Health Canada and we will work with local health officials as we get closer to the event.
We encourage all those interested in presenting at ISSW2020 to continue to submit their abstracts. The abstract submission deadline is April 27. We will review timelines and policies on an ongoing basis to ensure the abstract and paper submission process remains optimal in light of developments brought about by Covid-19. If there are any changes to the process, we will let you know at the earliest opportunity.
Please continue to monitor the ISSW website and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns.
