COVID-19 and CASID 2020 UPDATE

2020 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, Western University, London, ON

A second special briefing on COVID-19 and implications for Congress 2020 was held by the Federation on 13 March 2020.

The Federation states: 

…all signs indicate that a traditional, in-person Congress, is becoming less and less likely.

Our focus now is on finding alternate ways for associations to meet and present their research, whileprotecting public health, and the health of Congress participants.

Further information is meant to be provided by the Federation during the week of 23 March 2020.

We are currently considering alternative plans for the CASID 2020 Conference. We received a vibrant set of submissions for the conference from researchers, development professionals, and graduate students based in Canada and internationally. 

Since the Federation made its announcement, Canada has restricted entry (16 March) and the province of Ontario declared a state of emergency (17 March).

We urge members and conference participants to restrict travel plans related to Congress 2020 and the CASID Conference. 

Further updates will be communicated as soon as more information is available.
