A Message from ISSX Regarding COVID-19

Dear Colleague,

As you would expect, ISSX has been closely monitoring statements from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) regarding the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

To this end, we have put into place the following measures:
  • Monitoring the international situation and making decisions in good time as to whether any scientific meetings should go ahead, be postponed or cancelled, or be held virtually. As you may already be aware, we decided last week to cancel the joint European ISSX/EACPT meeting scheduled for Geneva, Switzerland in June this year. We hope to be able to announce soon our plans for an alternative event for European members but this is not likely to take place until 2021.
  • The North American ISSX/JSSX joint meeting at Waikoloa, Hawaii from October 4th to 8th this year is still planned to proceed. For more detail, please visit the meeting website.
  • Two events in early 2021, the Asia-Pacific ISSX meeting in Bangalore, India and Joint Workshop with IQ in San Francisco Bay area are also still planned to proceed.
  • We continue to run regular webinars and hope you will find these events particularly useful during the present situation where many of you are working remotely.
We feel the above is an appropriate response to ensure that there is business continuity within the Society. However, the situation is changing rapidly and we are ready to respond further as Government advice internationally changes.

Should you have any queries please direct them to the ISSX Office. Our staff are monitoring all correspondence and will respond as needed. We will regularly update our website and will keep you informed of further developments via email.

With best wishes,
            Ann Daly
            ISSX President
Scott Obach
ISSX President-Elect
