During these very troubling times facing our world, the planning committee for the AAACE 2020 conference wants to extend our best wishes to each of you and to provide a few updates:
We are remaining optimistic and hopeful about our annual conference and at this time, we are proceeding with planning and preparing for the conference scheduled for October 27-30, 2020. Given the impact of the pandemic, we have decided to extend the proposal submission deadline to May 13, 2020. We hope that this will allow you enough time to submit your proposal for consideration.
Should the circumstances related to our ability to host the conference as originally planned change, rest assured that we are considering alternate options with everyone's health and safety in mind. For now, we want to encourage you to share the call for proposals across all your networks and to submit a proposal before this new final deadline. Interestingly, we have already started receiving proposals related to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis and we have created a conference track specifically for welcoming research and practice papers related to the pandemic.
The AAACE conference is one that we have always looked forward to, but this year it will be even more special. We thank you for your support of AAACE and our conference and we look forward to seeing everyone in Reno in October.
