42nd Annual Meeting Update

April 27, 2020

We are writing with an update on the 42nd Annual Meeting scheduled for this October. Given limitations on travel and expenses in general that are being implemented at many universities, SMDM is actively exploring virtual options for this meeting.  We will keep the membership up to date as we know more; the health and wellbeing of SMDM members is our greatest concern.

In order to encourage abstract submissions, the abstract fee has been waived. Abstracts for the 42nd Annual North American Meeting are currently being accepted through Tuesday, June 2, 2020 here: https://smdm.confex.com/smdm/2020/cfp.cgi. Please note that if you have already submitted an abstract and paid a fee, this will be refunded.

While meeting in person would be optimal and the intimate nature of the SMDM meeting is an aspect we all cherish, we will still look forward to engaging as a community virtually until we can meet again!
