CORONA-VIRUS


Corona-virus (COVID-19)
Message from the organizers – Last updated: March 25, 2020.

As the world is on a complete halt these days, it is too soon to anticipate the outcome and impact of this pandemic in our daily lives. The Organizing Team and Steering Committee of LA-CCI2020 are now monitoring the situation in relation to Corona-virus (COVID-19) and its potential consequences towards our conference.  At the moment we are continuing the activities as planned, that is we are planning to hold the Conference on mid November, 2020.

For sure we will abide to all the directions and regulations emanated from the WHO (World Health Organization) and national governments, especially the Chilean health authorities. We will also keep you informed of any changes. But for now keep writing your papers and let us not allow Science to stop!

Meanwhile stay safe, and as much as possible, try not to leave the security of your homes! This single action, as you may know, has the potential to reduce the transmission rate of the epidemics and consequently will allow our health services to keep up with this enormous  challenge posed to all of us.

The Organizers and Steering Committee of LA-CCI2020.
