After careful consideration, the ISDP board has decided to make our 2020 meeting completely virtual. This difficult decision is based upon uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 risks related to holding an in-person gathering of any size in Washington DC/Bethesda. We are moving ahead with a virtual meeting so that we can share our science. Therefore, we highly encourage you to prepare and collaborate with colleagues for ISDP 2020 in this virtual setting. The deadline for submission of abstracts, travel awards, and nominations for society awards has been extended to August 15th (LINK). We have learned a lot from other colleagues who have prepared virtual conferences and are working on creating a meeting that will allow for interactions and discussion, which is the hallmark of ISDP. Updates will be available on our website (www.isdp.org/current/), and communications via email and social media. More details will be available by the end of August regarding the exact format.
We look forward to your virtual participation and to the day we can meet up again safely in person!
