30 March 2020

The health and safety of OSA Meetings attendees is always of primary importance, and especially so in our current environment.

OSA continues to monitor developments with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and its impact on upcoming events. We are currently working with volunteer organizers for this meeting on a solution that benefits speakers, attendees and exhibitors while ensuring the well-being of all participants. This approach does require time, and we appreciate your patience in waiting for an announcement on future plans.
