“The program committee is ensuring that the conference will be an integrated format of online and in-person so that attendees may select the option that is right for them and so that we may monitor the situation and make decisions based on the most up-to-date information. The conference planning committee has voted yes to the measure that requires all in-person attendees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as confirmed on a self-reported basis at registration or check-in. The organization will also be following the latest CDC guidance on mask wearing. Because we will offer robust online participation options, these rules should not prevent anyone from presenting or attending panels. The program committee’s number one priority is ensuring the safety and health of our membership. We know many of us long for more in-person intellectual community at this point, and we hope to make that a reality, but we will have to do so within reasonable safety measures and transparent communication about how we hope to achieve those ends.”
