Dear DDI Member and Scientific Board Representatives,
In consultation with the DDI Executive Board, we have made a decision to cancel the in-person annual meeting scheduled for May 18, 2020 in Gothenburg, Sweden (the Monday of IASSIST). This decision was based on the most recent information about the COVID-19 pandemic and in an abundance of caution.
In place of the in-person meeting, we will hold a virtual meeting instead. We are currently liaising as to the timing and content of the meeting given the international spread of our membership. More information about the virtual meeting will be shared in the coming month.
We recognise that this is an unprecedented and unique situation and appreciate your flexibility. Our thoughts are with everyone affected in the DDI community. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Alliance.
Chair, on behalf of the DDI Executive Board
