Dear AIC-AFS membership. The organizing committee of the 2020 AIC-AFS meeting has been actively discussing this year’s conference and have decided to move the entire proceedings to a virtual format. Given the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic we see this as the only safe alternative for the membership.


Currently, we are in the process of discussing the next steps forward. We have decided to use the AFS conference format as a template and are exploring how we can ensure we are either, a) included in the AFS parent conference, or b) will be using their platform to hold our own.


More information will be made available in the coming weeks.


We hope you stay well, and we look forward to meeting with you in a virtual format in September and again in person at future AFS-AIC meetings.
