Engineers Australia has announced that APEMC 2020 will be cancelled due to the impact of the Coronavirus Crisis.
It has been cancelled for Health and Safety reasons, as well as the fact that it is no longer viable as an event as 70% of the accepted papers are from Asia and there are travel bans in force for most of the authors and visas may be difficult to obtain for the event in May. Travel bans are being extended and more extreme measure may be implemented in the near future.
This was a difficult decision to make due to the worldwide impact but APEMC 2020 is not the only public gathering being cancelled but it was prudent to make the decision as quickly as possible to limit the financial damage to Engineers Australia and individuals who would be booking travel and accommodation.
We apologise to those who have been financially impacted by this decision but it was the only responsible thing to do given the current situation. The Antenna Short Course which was to be held concurrently with APEMC 2020 is still going ahead. The dates are yet to be determined.
All details will be posted here at www.emcsaworkshop.org.au as they become available.
