Update on CHI 2020 in relation to Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

When reading this, we are sure you have by then become aware of the news coverage in terms of travel restrictions to the USA and also various additional travel restrictions by universities in the USA and overseas, along with the announcement of the WHO to call the current situation a pandemic. 

We had planned on posting a different blog entry, however, the recent events demand a different response we believe, hence we have been re-evaluating the situation and we will meet with all the stakeholders including ACM, the Executive Committee and Steering Committee representatives, etc. next. 

The email to all registered people that went out was an unfortunate coincidence in terms of timing, please understand that they are planned well in advance. Rest assured, we will post updates here in regards to the current Covid-19 situation shortly.

Thank you for your understanding,
Floyd & Regina
