When will the virtual NACLC 2020 take place?
NACLC 2020 has been moved to a fully virtual meeting, which will take place October 16-17, 2020.
Why has NACLC 2020 been changed to a virtual meeting?
The change to a virtual meeting was based on multiple factors, including but not limited to the current travel restrictions put in place by the U.S. and other countries, and, importantly, the toll currently being placed on our health care community. These restrictions significantly affect the ability of delegates, speakers, presenters and exhibitors to participate fully in NACLC 2020 even if a live meeting was legally allowed to take place. This decision also underlines our commitment to containing the virus and preventing further sickness and loss of life.
If I already booked my air ticket, will my airfare be refunded?
Please ask your travel agent/airline and let them know you are cancelling or modifying your booking due to the cancellation of NACLC 2020 in Chicago due to COVID-19. The responsibility for airfare bookings and refunds is the responsibility of the individual and falls outside the scope of NACLC 2020 and will be dependent on the type of fare booked and travel insurance coverage. Faculty members who have booked airfare may contact the Conference Secretariat at naclc2020-program at icsevents.com.
I was originally invited to speak at the Conference or chair a session. Does the invitation automatically extend to the virtual NACLC 2020?
Due to a condensed program, the program committee is reassessing and revaluating the scientific program. New invitations are expected to be sent in July 2020.
SPONSORS & EXHIBITORS
I am an exhibitor and/or sponsor, what happens now?
