The World Congress Is Going Virtual!
Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our members and meeting participants. Over the last several weeks, we have been closely monitoring the evolving situation with the COVID-19 outbreak to ensure we are taking every precaution to look after the well-being of our community. We noted the recent travel restrictions, ordered closures, and gathering restrictions recently enacted in the state of California which disallow for the convention center to host our meeting. We have been reviewing the updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local governments, and have been actively following travel advisories and restrictions being placed on our members and registrants across the globe.
After careful consideration, we regretfully announce that there will be no in-person gathering for the 2020 World Congress on In Vitro Biology. However, while we might not be able to meet live and in person, we are committed to bringing the education and science directly to our members and meeting registrants.
To continue to provide you with a full program of informative sessions and educational content, we are taking the 2020 World Congress on In Vitro Biology online! The 2020 World Congress Program will be offered to all registrants as virtual pre-recorded presentations including contributed papers and poster presentations!
Over the next few weeks, we will be updating our website to address changes to the Congress format to provide details you will need to know. We will be reaching out to all conveners, speakers, presenters, and registrants to provide you with the information you will need to participate in this event and to address concerns you may have.
We have prepared a list of Frequently Asked Questions to assist you in addressing your immediate questions. We will continue to update the FAQ as well as this page for information as it becomes available.
While times may be uncertain, there is one thing that remains true: Our members are an exceptional group of scientists and we, like them, are committed to providing the best possible scientific knowledge we can. Thank you for your understanding and we do hope you will be able to participate in this special virtual pre-recorded 2020 World Congress on In Vitro Biology
