In response to considering the possible COVID-19 travel restrictions, the Organizing Committee has decided to allow optional online participation as well as an in-person meeting. Participants will be asked to select their participation format, either in-person or online, during registration. We hope this in-person/online hybrid format would allow our friends and colleagues to participate with minimal interference from the effect of the pandemic.
