Note to conference organizers:

One of my family members has very high risk when exposed to COVID-19. Because of that, I will not speak at in-person conferences for the foreseeable future. Even when all countries involved have lifted travel and in-person meeting restrictions, I still might cancel if I consider the personal risk to me and my family too high.

As much as I love to attend in-person conferences, I urge all organizers to switch to virtual until the pandemic is under control.
