Though conditions are changing globally every day, the health and safety of our delegates, speakers, and exhibitors in these uncertain times remain our number one priority. We understand the uncertainty about this year’s conference in October 2020, and we want you to submit your abstract with confidence knowing that the CCEC 2020 has a plan for an in-person (if conditions permit) and virtual event. Learn more about what to expect with a virtual experience from our CCEC 2020 FAQ.
Regardless of the conditions in October 2020, we will be providing a virtual option where you as a participant can share your scientific research, learn about emerging topics in the field, and make real connections with members of the community. To give you time to explore the virtual event experience and reach out regarding any questions or concerns, we have extended the abstract submission deadline to July 20, 2020.
In the event of any changes to the conference status, the CCEC 2020 Organizing Committee will communicate immediately to all attendees through email and the CCEC 2020 website.
