Latest update on the alternative plans for EPICOH

Dear EPICOH Community,

We are writing to give you an update on the alternative plans for EPICOH 2020. As you know, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we made the difficult decision to postpone the meeting that was to be held this August/September in Montreal. Our current plan is to postpone the meeting for a year, and host the EPICOH in the second half of 2021. As we monitor the evolving pandemic situation, we will make a decision in the coming months whether EPICOH 2021 will be in-person or virtual. Our hope is that we will be able to hold an in-person meeting, as the personal interactions are one of the highlights of the meeting. However, if the situation does not allow for in-person contact, we will instead host a virtual meeting, as many other societies have done and are doing. We hope to learn from them about what the most successful strategies are for such activities. Once we decide on a format, we will be in touch with those of you who submitted an abstract or symposium to determine whether or not you wish to present your abstract. There will also be opportunities to submit new abstracts.

In the meantime, to maintain the EPICOH connection, we are planning to hold a virtual webinar later this year. The exact dates and agenda will be forthcoming, but we are hoping to hold such an event in November or December. Our aim is to make this event free for everyone, and hope that you will join us for a few keynote presentations. We will send additional details via email, and they will be available on the EPICOH Website.
