SCZI2020 - CANCELLED
January 30, 2020
We have been monitoring closely the outbreak of the coronavirus over this last week. As you may know, today the World Health Organization has declared the outbreak to be a "Public Health Emergency of International Concern."
The travel ban preventing Chinese researchers from traveling to Taiwan, together with major airlines cancelling flights to several cities in China that impacts many of our attendees flight plans, have resulted in quite a few cancellations. In addition, several other attendees have also cancelled in recent days, leaving us with a much reduced conference size and a significantly reduced roster of speakers. We are also concerned about a possible expansion of the outbreak that may result in travel restrictions to and from Taiwan, and may develop over the course of the conference.
For those reasons, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the conference. We appreciate the time and effort you have put in to be part of this conference. IZFS staff will be working to refund registration fees over the next couple of weeks.
Please contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.
