CI 2020 Conference Cancelled
|Dear ACI Alliance Members, Attendees and Sponsors,|
After closely monitoring developments related to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak and assessing its current and potential impact, the American Cochlear Implant Alliance has made the difficult but important decision to cancel the CI2020 International Conference, March 18-21, 2020 in Orlando, FL.
As members of the global community, we recognize the challenge this outbreak is placing on the medical community. Given the rapid evolution and uncertainty surrounding the transmission of COVID-19 and the travel restrictions being enacted by a large and growing number of universities, hospitals and other institutions which have prohibited both international and domestic US travel as well as attendance at meetings, ACI Alliance Leadership have made the difficult but responsible decision to cancel the CI2020 meeting. Given the circumstances, it was impossible for the conference to go forward.
Preparing for the conference involves the time, talent and ideas of many members and volunteers, speakers, presenters, exhibitors, sponsors and event partners. We especially recognize and thank the UNC Scientific Program Committee, which assembled an extraordinary program for all of us. We’re grateful for the work and contributions of so many people and deeply disappointed not to be able to hold the meeting as planned.
Please review the CI2020 COVID-19 webpage to find information to answer your immediate questions regarding cancellations.
We will miss seeing you in Orlando and hope to see you next year in Dallas for CI2021.
