An Important Message about the International Science of Team Science Conference 2020

We hope this message finds you healthy and safe as we, you, and the world confront the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic. We realize the situation is likely profoundly affecting your daily personal and professional activities, and your ability to make near-term travel plans. 

The SciTS 2020 conference local planning committee and INSciTS leadership want to assure our community that we are monitoring all available information about COVID-19, including public health and operational guidance at national, state, municipal, and institutional levels. As we navigate this situation, our highest priority is the health and safety of our members and extended community worldwide.

The June 1-4th dates of the SciTS 2020 conference fall outside of the current timeframes for all official directives and guidelines against gathering in groups. At this time, we expect SciTS 2020 to proceed as planned. However, because the situation is changing daily, we continue to monitor local, state, and federal government mandates regarding large gatherings, and will respond accordingly. We will communicate any changes in the plans for the conference to you as swiftly as possible.

There are three main points we would like to communicate about the 2020 conference:

  1. At the current time, SciTS 2020 will proceed as planned.
  2. INSciTS is aware that some participants are restricted from using institutional and sponsored funds at this time, due to local policies. To assist with this temporary barrier, you may register without paying. If we are able to hold the conference, we will collect payment of the registration fee before or at the conference and when your access to funds becomes more predictable.
  3. INSciTS and the local planning committee are monitoring the situation daily and will provide updates as additional information becomes available. 

All those already accepted into the SciTS 2020 program will retain their slots. We are also re-evaluating the Early Bird fee calendar as the situation evolves.

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time. We wish all of you health, safety, and as much calm as possible amidst these unprecedented events.

All the best,

Gaetano R. Lotrecchiano, EdD, PhD
President, International Network for the Science of Team Science (INSciTS)
