Health and Safety
updated 24 March 2020
Following the declaration by the World Health Organization (WHO) of COVID-19 as a pandemic, local, regional, national, and international bodies have moved to restrict travel and mass gatherings. After careful consideration and in light of the global health emergency and pervasive travel restrictions, IEEE will not be holding the 15 May 2020 IEEE VIC Summit and Honors Ceremony. This was a difficult decision, however, the safety and well-being of our participants is of paramount importance to IEEE. Our thoughts are with all who have been affected by the virus.
Registered participants will receive full refunds within the next few weeks. If you have made a hotel reservation in our room block at the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver, your hotel reservation has automatically been canceled. No further action is needed. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
Please continue to monitor this website for updates on how we will be honoring IEEE’s 2020 Medal & Recognition recipients: https://ieee-vics.org/ceremony-gala-2/ieee-award-recipients/
We are looking forward to seeing you at the 2021 IEEE VIC Summit and Honors Ceremony. The 2021 date and location will be announced in the coming months.
Many thanks for your ongoing support of the IEEE Awards Program.
