Important information about our 2021 International Clinical Engineering and Health Technology Management Congress by Tom Judd (IFMBE CED), Yadin David (GCEA), and Robert Robert Burroughs (AAMI).
Dear Global Clinical Engineering Colleagues:
While conditions have improved in the United States, unfortunately, the COVID-19 infection rate is on the rise again, especially with the rapid spread of the Delta variants, causing global travel to the United States to continue to be severely restricted.
Given this, and out of an abundance of caution and concern for the well-being of all our stakeholders, the 4th International Clinical Engineering and Health Technology Management Congress (ICEHTMC - https://www.aami.org/events/icehtmc2021) that was to take place in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, September 28 –29, 2021, has been canceled. Refunds will automatically be issued to all registrants and sponsors.
Although we cannot come together in person, plans are being developed to host an excellent 2021 virtual event in late October to allow us to engage even more fully with all of our global peers. We will share more information on that virtual ICEHTMC Congress and how you can be involved soon.
If your abstract was already accepted, it will automatically be included in the virtual Congress. In addition, depending on the capacity of the virtual event, we may be able to review additional presentations. You will be notified as soon as details are available, and no later than early next month. Please ensure your abstract co-authors are notified of this communication.
Stay safe and be well.
