Dear IAF Community,
Following the recent COVID-19 outbreak, we wanted to get in touch with our worldwide community to update you on the IAF activities, and also to offer solidarity with you at this challenging time.
The IAF Secretariat has been reviewing the situation since January and eventually took the decision to suspend all face-to-face interactions.
The Federation remains operational and open so that we can provide support for the many of you who submitted a plenary proposal, an IAF GNF session, an abstract, or were supposed to meet at the IAF Spring Meetings. Please keep getting in touch with us with your requests. In keeping with official French government advice, the IAF Secretariat is presently working remotely. We have systems set up which allow us to continue supporting the Federation as usual. We will be working remotely to be able to respond in a timely manner, but please do bear with us.
IAF Spring Meetings 2020
Global Space Exploration Conference #GLEX2020
International Astronautical Congress #IAC2020
But for now, it is a time for people to look out for each other, and for human kindness and warmth. Even if we cannot enjoy this face-to-face please remember that our IAF social media channels are one way to maintain contact with the IAF and with each other, you are not alone.
Do take care, we love you
