December 2020, Issue No.3
Dear Members of AASP and Prospective Participants,
I hope you are all well.
I would like to take this opportunity to give you an update on the 2021 Seoul Conference. AASP held 2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM) via zoom on the 7th of December, during which Officers and Executive Committee members discussed extensively how to proceed with the Seoul event. The discussion led to a tentative conclusion that it is too early to make a firm decision on the conference format (off-line, on-line, hybrid, etc.). This view has also been shared with the local organizing committee, KSPPA, whose position is that as long as the final decision is made early in March, an off-line event can still be managed effectively. Based on these considerations, we have decided to defer the final decision and continue to assess possibilities for an off-line event as scheduled. Along these lines, we now announce a new timeline for the conference as follows:
- Deadline for abstract submission extended to 15 Feb. 2021
- Notification of acceptance
– 31 Jan. 2021 (for abstracts submitted by 31 Dec. 2020)
– 15 Mar. 2021 (for abstracts submitted by 15 Feb. 2021)
- Decision on the format of the conference: 15 Mar. 2021
- Registration: TBA
I understand you may find the decision rather frustrating as it may force you to live in limbo for another couple of months. Nevertheless, I sincerely hope you will understand that the decision reflects our commitment to hosting a highly impactful event for the benefit of the participants. Thus, I humbly ask you to remain hopeful and exercise patience with us. We will make regular updates as we move forward.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the undersigned.
Wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
