A Message to Participants
You may be wondering whether we are still having the 2020 Marce conference in light of the pandemic. As of today (April 7), the conference is six months away. I, in consultation with our Executive Board and the University of Iowa Center for Conferences, recognize that the trajectory of this pandemic is uncertain. We will continue to evaluate travel restrictions/recommendations and keep you informed of all decisions about the conference here on the conference website.
On a positive note, we are pleased that there were over 450 submitted abstracts! The Scientific Committee-both chairs and reviewers- are currently reviewing the abstracts exactly as we would in normal circumstances. We plan to send out notification letters as soon as these reviews are complete. We know that abstracts that are reviewed and accepted are still of value to you, whatever the eventual status of the meeting.
Lisa Segre, President
