AVS 67 IS SCHEDULED TO TAKE PLACE, AS PLANNED, OCTOBER 25-30, 2020 IN DENVER, COLORADO

COVID-19 Update - We realize that the COVID-19 outbreak is impacting every one of us and we hope that you, your friends, and families are all safe. The health and safety of our attendees, vendors, volunteers, and staff is our top priority and we are continuing to monitor developments related to the COVID-19 outbreak and its impact on global travel.
 
At this time, we are moving forward with planning for AVS 67 at the end of October anticipating that this pandemic will be under control by then. If we are still dealing with severe travel restrictions by the end of the summer, we will evaluate options and advise of any changes or cancellation. All updates will be communicated immediately to all registered meeting attendees and posted on the meeting website.
 
We understand that the evolving situation may affect your plans to submit an abstract by the extended June 1st deadline. Please know that AVS will be offering opportunities to submit an abstract over summer. If you have any questions, please contact della@avs.org
