COVID-19 Update for IPSSW2020 – Transitioning to IPSSV2020: A Virtual Experience
Meeting Update: June 19, 2020
IPSS leadership and the IPSSW meeting organizing committee have been closely monitoring the fluid situation around COVID-19. Institutional travel and funding restrictions make travel to a live event unfeasible for many.
With this in mind, after careful consideration, we are excited to announce that IPSS is leading the way by converting IPSSW2020 to an innovative, interactive, live streaming format – IPSSV2020: A Virtual Experience.
The dates will remain 26-28 October 2020, with more details to come on the exact outline, agenda and pricing. Our commitment holds true to our virtual convening, as it does to our in-person IPSSW, that we offer a program allowing presentations of scientific work to be accessible to our global membership.
Our virtual convening is being developed to exceed your expectations and meet you in the moment with a format that promises to be even more engaging – thought provoking – and relevant than ever.
You may expect more specific details around the virtual convening on or before July 15. We will also be in touch with current attendees directly regarding the change in registration. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for answers to additional questions, or visit ipssglobal.org/ipssw-2020 for up-to-date information as it becomes available.
Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding. We believe this pivot from an in-person convening to a virtual experience is the best decision for all. We look forward to seeing you all virtually in October, and wish you all the very best during these uncertain times.
