Important EMI 2020 / PMC 2020 Update

Dear EMI 2020 / PMC 2020 Participants,

Due to the COVID-19 situation and in consultation with Columbia University and ASCE, we are announcing that the EMI 2020 / PMC 2020 Conference is being postponed until next year. We have been monitoring the situation very closely and due to rising concerns, particularly in the NYC area, and the highly unpredictable nature of the situation, we have decided to postpone the meeting to May 25–28, 2021. We will change the title to EMI 2021 / PMC 2021, and it will still be held at Columbia University. Johns Hopkins University will host EMI 2022.

We understand this is a disappointment; however, we want to make sure everyone stays safe and healthy.

For those who have registered, a separate email will be sent to you with options for your registration fee. If you have arranged travel plans, please cancel them. If you have booked a room in one of the hotel room blocks at either the Hudson Hotel or Empire Hotel, you will need to contact the hotel directly to cancel it.

There will also be a separate e-mail that will detail how accepted abstracts will be handled.

We appreciate your understanding during this challenging time. Please stay safe, and we look forward to welcoming you to Columbia University in 2021.
