SACOMM2020 conference update and forecast

Dear SACOMM Members and Associates

Flowing forth from the national state of disaster issued around the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the SACOMM Executive Committee and the 2020 Local Organising Committee at the University of Limpopo would like to update you on our conference which is set to take place later this year. The outbreak remains a very fluid situation, and please be assured that we are monitoring the effects and implications very closely. We are hopeful that our conference will be able to go ahead as planned, albeit perhaps a little later in the year than usual.

Since we seek to make decisions that prioritise your health and safety, we will not be issuing our Call for Papers at this time, but will work towards doing so as soon as the situation allows. We appreciate that this remains a stressful and trying situation, and ask for your understanding as we seek to make well-informed decisions in a timely manner.

Please feel free to contact the Association directly if you have any questions. On our website you will find our contact details and regularly updated information around the conference.
