Statement on Cancellation of the 2020 Southwest & Southeastern Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society
In coordination with the Hilton Riverside, our venue, we have cancelled the Joint Southwest & Southeastern Regional Meeting of the ACS. The City of New Orleans has not relaxed COVID-19 precautions enough for us to proceed with a regional meeting that meets ACS and our standards. City guidelines require all events be timed and seated along with specific prohibitions on trade shows/exhibits and networking events, thus all we would have been able to offer are oral presentations. The Hilton offered a force majeure cancellation and we accepted.
We applaud those who submitted abstracts under the present circumstances. Going forward we hope you support the 2021 SERMACS and SWRM (the Southwest Regional Meeting) to be held in Birmingham, AL and Austin, TX, respectively, with the same energy you gave us.
