March 2020 Update:
Please hold the dates of the conference, if possible, as the conference committee, which has been devoting considerable time and effort to planning the in-person conference and activities, is looking at alternate ways of delivering the conference content.
We will be providing information about the alternate plans by April 10th, including registration options and timing. As of this afternoon, we are closing the conference registration site. Refunds of registration for the in-person meeting will be processed after April 10, 2020. We will also post updated information on the SAVIR website.
Please remember that you are responsible for cancelling any hotel reservations that you have made for the conference, as well as your travel arrangements.
If you have any questions, please contact SAVIR@meinet.com
Thank you for your support and interest during this time. We look forward to continuing to have you involved with SAVIR.
