We regretfully inform you that the Atlanta 2020 ISA-South meeting will NOT be held this year. It was a very difficult decision that we had to make. After thorough consultation with the Executive Council, the Pedagogy conference which was co-hosting the meeting, other organizations holding meetings at around the same time, and colleagues from several parts of the country, we decided that for safety reasons we needed to postpone the conference until 2021. There is simply too much uncertainty about what will happen with the COVID-19 pandemic. We are also painfully aware, as you are, of the financial exigencies plaguing our institutions at this moment, including the possibility of reduced, if any, travel budgets.
For these reasons and with your safety and the best interest of ISA-South in mind, we decided it would not be prudent to hold the conference in 2020. Instead, we decided to postpone it until October 2021. So, barring the unexpected and after consulting with the relevant program chairs, we plan on hosting Atlanta 2021 and St. Augustine 2022.
