GETS Conference May 19 & 20, 2022
Unfortunately, given the resurgent COVID Delta variant and the rapidly growing number of institutions and individuals who are accordingly foregoing travel this fall, we have no choice but to postpone the GETS conference yet again. The conference that was scheduled for October 29-30, 2021 has been moved to May 19 & 20, 2022. We sincerely hope this will be the last COVID-induced postponement of this conference – we are eager to meet again in-person as we know are many of you. But better safe than sorry, and there is too much uncertainty at this time about the status of the pandemic in late October to make the investments and plans needed now to go forward with the conference.
With respect to abstracts submitted to speak at the conference, we will proceed as follows:
- For those who had abstracts accepted for the May 2020 GETS conference, we will continue to honor those acceptances and automatically provide you a speaking slot in the May 2022 conference. You are free (but not required) to update your abstract.
- For those who submitted abstracts in 2021 by the August 2021 deadline, we will hold off on further review of those abstracts until January 2022. You are free (but not required) to update your abstract any time before January 31, 2022.
- For those who have not yet submitted an abstract but are interested in doing so, we will accept new abstracts until January 2022.
We apologize for the uncertainty and disruption these repeated conference postponements have caused, although we know that many other aspects of your professional and personal lives have been likewise affected. Hopefully we can all pull together and get this pandemic under control and resume everything we cherish in life, including the GETS 2000 GETS 2021 GETS 2022 8th “annual” conference!
