ITherm 2020 Notice Regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic

As you are likely already aware, the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared COVID-19 to be a pandemic, and now there are many restrictions on travel and in-person convening.

The health and safety of our event participants is of paramount importance to IEEE. We will continue to monitor travel advisories issued by WHO and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as heed the guidance of local and regional authorities. We will continue work with our partners at the Swan and Dolphin Resort to remain current on the city's preparedness to deal with any needs.

Additionally, at this time, the Organizing Committee of ITherm 2020, originally scheduled for May 26th-29th, is discussing the potential to either postpone, virtually conduct or cancel this year's event should that become a necessity. This decision will be reached after carefully considering all available information and consulting with the event's sponsors. At this time, we expect to be able to provide an update on our plans on or about Friday, April 3rd 2020.

Travel Booking Guidance

At this time, we encourage you to book a flight that offers a refund or no change fee, or to hold off until a decision is reached. Some airlines may offer refunds if travel is canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check with your airline provider for details.

It is unlikely that travel insurance coverage will apply to cancellation of your trip due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is because the COVID-19 pandemic is no longer an "unexpected event." Generally, fear of travel is not a covered event under most policies. Please read all travel insurance policies thoroughly.

Travel Guidelines

We urge all travelers to keep informed on risks, precautions, and symptoms to make educated decisions. Travelers can check for updated information on the following sites:
