Due to the global COVID-19 developments and following thoughtful considerations, the SAALAS Executive Committee and the 2020 conference organising committee has decided to postpone the conference scheduled to take place in November 2020. This decision also reflects public health concerns and acknowledges the restrictions now in place for national and international travel. The risk of bringing together a large group of professionals is currently difficult to justify and could jeopardize the continuity of science and care.

A new date will be announced in the future and we are hopeful that the Conference will take place in 2021.
