IMPORTANT INFORMATION (updated 25 March 2020): This event has been cancelled, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is outside of our control and we would prefer all to stay happy and healthy rather than expose anyone to the virus. However, our Proceeding Officer is accepting submissions of articles. Any teacher that had offered to teach a class please think about how you can teach your class by other means, as we are looking into virtual options at the moment.
