Note to conference organizers:
My wife has very high risk when exposed to Covid-19. After receiving our vaccinations and booster shots, we feel we no longer have to be as restrictive in what we do, but we still avoid risk where possible. And as new variants evolve, we might have to return to being more careful again.
For events taking place before July 2022, I will only submit if the event is virtual or hybrid. For later events, I do submit even when it’s an in-person event, but I do still reserve the right to cancel my attendance, even when all official guidelines and regulations of all countries involved are met, if I feel that the personal risk to me and my wife would be too high.
As much as I love to attend in-person conferences, I urge all organizers to have virtual events only until the pandemic is fully and worldwide under control.
