Important message from the Autumn Symposium Organising Committee

Over the past few weeks, we have been watching the situation with COVID-19 closely.  We initially made the decision to delay opening registration and following a meeting of the ACEM board on March 12, a decision was made to postpone the symposium for the time being. We are exploring alternative dates and will keep the website updated as further information is available.   

We would like to thank our presenters who have already put substantial time and effort into the symposium. We would also like to thank all of you who have supported the symposium over the years and hope to be able to bring you a great program again in the future.
