Welcome to USNCCM16!


Due to the continued uncertainty of the situation with COVID-19, a need to make a decision sooner than anticipated, and in consultation with the USACM Executive Committee, we are announcing that USNCCM16 will be held July 25-29 as a fully virtual event.

While we realize it may be disappointing to not meet in person after this long year, we want you to know that we are planning to offer a virtual event that will be both intellectually stimulating and engaging.  

In addition to the plenary and semi-plenary talks, each session will be broadcast live and will consist of talks and Q&A times.  Informal networking opportunities will also be available as well as other activities, such as a poster competition and special events.  Registration fees are being revised and will be posted on March 15.  More detailed updates will be posted soon.
