After two months of monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects, the Society for Vascular Ultrasound (SVU) has come to the difficult but necessary decision to officially cancel the SVU 2020 Annual Conference, originally scheduled to be held August 6th – 8th, 2020 in New Orleans, LA. In lieu of an in-person meeting, SVU is planning an exciting virtual conference. We will make a formal announcement once those plans are finalized in a few weeks. All Annual Conference registrants and exhibitors will be given the opportunity to either apply their payments towards virtual conference registration or receive a full refund. Individuals who submitted Abstracts for the Annual Conference will be notified of their status and details for presentations by email in the next few weeks.
SVU will hold our Regional Meetings and Fall RPVI Review Course as planned. We will reevaluate monthly whether or not any of these shows should be postponed or canceled. Should any of these courses be canceled, all registrants will receive full refunds of their registration fee. The health and safety of our conference attendees are our top priority. SVU is working closely with all our conference venue staff and taking all necessary precautions to ensure the health and safety of all attendees and guests. We will closely monitor updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) for substantial shifts in the public health situation. We encourage attendees to track these updates as well, and follow CDC guidelines and common sense preventive measures to combat the spread of communicable illness. For additional resources, please see this page set up by our friends at SDMS.
Updates will be sent by email and will also be available on the new SVU homepage at www.svu.org, under the News section. If you have any questions or need further information, please contact SVU at email@example.com
