42nd Annual North American Meeting Update

The 42nd Annual North American Meeting, scheduled to be held in Chicago, IL, October 18 - October 21, 2020, has been redesigned as a virtual conference. After careful deliberation, SMDM made the decision to cancel the in-person conference due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated global restrictions.

The virtual 42nd Annual North American Meeting will be held on four Tuesdays in October 2020 in order to encourage a flexible attendance schedule. Program content will include a COVID-19 modeling panel, symposia, short courses, individual abstracts with asynchronous discussion, and a career development panel. The virtual platform will allow for innovation and flexibility: convenient e-poster sessions and on demand program content are some of the positive changes attendees will experience. Please note that Lee Lusted Student Prizes will be included as part of the virtual meeting format.

The Deadline to submit an Abstract and Short Course closed Tuesday, June 2, 2020.


Registration information and additional details coming soon.
