In response to the current health conditions, SICB has developed plans to conduct our annual meeting in a safe and inclusive manner. The main feature of the plan is that SICB 2021 will be a virtual meeting for all attendees. Optional in-person activities (if possible) would be held at our original Washington, DC location, January 3-7, 2021.
The SICB Executive Committee is closely monitoring reported COVID-19 outbreaks, epidemiological and pathophysiological projections, CDC guidelines, and US government travel restrictions. The aim of these efforts is to ensure that decisions related to conference activities are timely and in the best interests of our members, registrants, attendees, and their families.
POTENTIAL IN-PERSON COMPONENT
In the unlikely event that in-person activities are able to take place in Washington DC during SICB 2021, SICB will be working closely with the Marriott Wardman Park to protect public health and the safety of SICB participants.
