We have been watching the situation regarding the COVID -19 virus and travel concerns.

After much deliberation, we have decided that the appropriate course of action is to cancel the conference this year. While much is unknown, our opinion is that it is best not to bring together people from many different places at this time.

This was a difficult decision. It is the first time in 35 years that it has been necessary to cancel ICSW.

This is of course very disappointing. But we feel it is the correct choice under the circumstances. We are looking ahead to 2021, with the tentative dates on March 14-17.

Thank you for your understanding of the situation.
