In February, AIChE formed a task force to actively monitor the development and impact of COVID-19 on global travel and to minimize risk to attendees of our events. The task force is continually evaluating and monitoring the situation and contingency plans for all conferences, including the Annual Meeting. Given the importance the Annual Meeting to researchers and job seekers, the complexities involved in making significant changes, and the meeting’s November date, we are currently planning the 2020 Annual Meeting as scheduled. In parallel, we are actively reviewing options to hold meetings virtually, should that become a necessity. If the situation changes, we will update this statement and inform attendees.
The Increasing Diversity of Chemical Engineering
The AIChE Annual Meeting is the premier educational forum for chemical engineers interested in innovation and professional growth. Academic and industry experts will cover wide range of topics relevant to cutting-edge research, new technologies, and emerging growth areas in chemical engineering.
