SIU Statement on COVID-19

Dear friends and colleagues,

The SIU is watching the quickly-evolving situation with COVID-19 and wishes to send its support and best wishes to all those affected by this pandemic. At present time, there are no plans to alter the planning for SIU 2020 in Montreal, scheduled for October 7-11.The SIU’s primary concern is the health and safety of attendees and the public. At the present time, there are no plans to alter the planning for SIU 2020 in Montreal this fall; however we are working through a range of options – both in-person and through online technologies – to ensure that we are in a position to deliver a Congress programme that is relevant, accessible, cost-effective and focused on the unique needs of the SIU community. We will advise if we expect any changes to Congress planning no later than June 15, 2020, as we know that these decisions impact your plans as well.
