SPE Response to COVID-19

Networking is such an important part of SPE, the COVID-19 virus is affecting nearly everything we do. Some conferences and workshops globally have been postponed or cancelled, and other activities are affected. View the latest information here.

SPE will continue actively monitoring the situation and potential impacts on future activities. The health and safety of our members and attendees is our highest priority, and that will guide any decisions that we make. We sincerely hope that our members and their families are not personally affected by this virus.
