In the light of the current situation concerning the Coronavirus outbreak, and after much thinking and careful deliberation, the Board of Directors of ARTESOL has made the difficult decision to cancel the ARTESOL 2020 Convention scheduled for May 15 – 16 at the Universidad Nacional de Lujan, Provincia de Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was not a decision easy to make but the safety of presenters, attendees, exhibitors, and people involved in the running of the convention was our primary concern.

The association values all the time, effort, and enthusiasm you all have put in preparing for this year’s Convention, and we are aware of the disappointment our decision will cause. This is the main reason why we are exploring ways to offer options to share past presenters’ work on online platforms.

We will do our best to hold our next year’s convention in May at the same venue. All payments made to the association will be promptly refunded, and confirmed speakers will have their proposals automatically included in the program of ARTESOL 2021.

Let’s keep our spirits high and not see this as a lost opportunity but as a delayed one. As soon as possible, we will all start focusing on planning the next year’s ARTESOL Annual Convention to ensure that it will be a valuable and successful event.
