Hi everyone,

Due to the uncertainties around the coronavirus pandemic and its potential effects on travel and gatherings in the future, the conference is being postponed from June 2021 to November 2021. The exact dates are still being finalized, but we wanted to give you all this update. Thanks to everyone who is working very hard to make this conference happen, and we’ll hopefully have many more details coming soon. Best wishes and good health to everyone and we hope to see you all in Mexico City next year.
