While a number of conferences have been canceled or moved to later this year, which we understand and support, we believe this makes it even more important than ever that we all convene virtually for 5CC in August. There are important, and in some cases urgent, topics to discuss: both the immediate challenges presented by COVID-19 and to play our part in helping restart the economy by connecting, collaborating, and supporting each other.
