Many have changed to either virtual conferences [Online, Zoom, Livestream, ... ], or hybrid formats with a combination of face-to-face and virtual presentations. Difficulties with overseas travel have caused us not to include a number of conferences that may previously have been considered for inclusion. In the current climate, you should also monitor potential selections to ensure they remain viable.
