Given the spread of COVID-19, we are postponing the RE3 event by a full year to 19-24 June 2021. Our SWS partner is discussing options with its Board of Directors and its decision to participate in the 2021 event is forthcoming. We anticipate a joint announcement from the three Societies in the upcoming weeks.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in these uncertain times.
