Due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic developments, we are monitoring the situation closely, with knowledge that despite areas beginning to reopen, COVID-19 cases are rising in many places, with several states in the U.S. and some countries continuing to experience new peaks in daily infections. We wanted to let you know that the meeting will happen.
Because the ISDP 2020 is an official Satellite meeting of the SfN, we must wait to decide whether it will be virtual or in-person until SfN makes its decision.
We have been examining various ways of making the meeting an interactive and engaging virtual meeting. The meeting may end up being even more interactive if we turn it into a Virtual Meeting, with the content from the sessions becoming available a week in advance so people can start discussing them even before, during and after the actual dates. We can keep the content alive and moving even after the meeting, and most importantly, expand access to the content to more people, those who are very far away, or have other reasons that keep them from attending the in person meeting annually.
We hope you are planning on joining us at ISDP 2020, whether that will be in person (hopefully) or virtually. The Abstract Deadline has been extended to August 1, 2020.
