From Jonathan Justice, ABFM Chair-Elect & Conference Chair

With the COVID-19 pandemic, ABFM’s 2020 Conference Committee is working full-steam-ahead (and more than six feet apart) to put together the 32nd annual research conference, scheduled for September 24-26, 2020, at the Hyatt Regency Miami.

We are still optimistic that it will be legal, safe, and prudent to hold the conference where, when, and as it is currently scheduled, but we are also evaluating options including rescheduling the conference, moving it to a virtual format, or cancelling the conference, if it proves imprudent to continue with a face-to-face conference in September.

We expect to have a clearer idea of prospects for September by the time we begin accepting conference sponsorships and registrations, and we will provide detailed information about contingency plans, refund policies, and the like when registration opens.

But for now, be sure to visit the links above to learn more about the conference, review the Call for Proposals, and to submit your proposal. The deadline for proposals remains May 1, 2020.

In the meantime, do not hesitate to ask questions or offer advice to the conference committee at abfmconference2020@gmail.com.

We hope to see you in Miami!
