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).
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 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 to allow us to engage even more fully with all of our global peers. We are happy to share with you that a more expanded program to coincide with the Global Clinical Engineering Day Celebration is planned instead and will include virtual 4th ICEHTMC Congress in late October 2021.
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.
If you have hotel reservations at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, we will contact you directly with the next steps. In the meantime, please contact IFMBE CED (firstname.lastname@example.org) or AAMI (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
Stay safe and be well.
