To the ASLO Community:
Given the rapidly escalating situation regarding COVID-19 and the state of Wisconsin’s moratorium on gatherings of 10 or more people, our societies have made the difficult decision to cancel the ASLO-SFS Meeting scheduled for June. While we have been looking forward to this event for years, our primary concern is the health and safety of our members. We deeply regret having to cancel the meeting but look forward to bringing our members together again in 2022 at the Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting.
We appreciate your enthusiasm for aquatic science: we had received over 1500 abstracts for the meeting. We also appreciate the work of many in planning the meeting, including the Program Committee, led by co-chairs Stephen Carpenter and Nancy Grimm.
As already indicated prior to registration, full refunds for all event and abstract fees will be issued automatically. There is no need to request a refund. Please be patient as the process may take several weeks.
Mike Pace, ASLO President, and Amy Rosemond, SFS President
