Abstracts Abstracts

The AMMI Canada – CACMID Annual Conference 2020, scheduled to take place in Vancouver, BC April 29 to May 2 has been cancelled.

The decision to cancel this conference was difficult but was made after careful deliberation and consideration.    Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the province of British Columbia recommending cancellation of all mass gatherings of over 250 people, travel restrictions for health care professionals to remain available at their workplace, and of course,  the health and safety of our members and delegates, the Central Planning Committee has determined that cancelling the conference is the prudent thing to do. 

The AMMI Canada-CACMID Annual Conference Central Planning Committee is still in the process of determining how the virtual presentation of both Poster and Oral presentations will be executed. This includes presentation format as well as what will be required from presenters and authors.  We are mindful that many of our presenters are working very hard right now in the midst of the COVID 19 Pandemic and may not have the ability to commit to presenting, especially without full details as to what is required. Rest assured, no penalties will be associated with withdrawing your abstract presentation at a later date. We thank you for your patience while we work out what will be required for a virtual presentation.


We encourage you to visit the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Coronavirus disease (COVID-19): Outbreak update page for information on COVID-19.
 
We look forward to welcoming you to the AMMI Canada – CACMID Annual Conference 2021, April 28 – May 1, in Toronto, ON at the Westin Harbour Castle.
 
If you have questions or require additional information, please contact meetings@ammi.ca.

Sincerely, 
AMMI Canada-CACMID Annual Conference Secretariat
