Committed to Safety

The resort and the EMC organizing committee are both committed to holding the conference in a safe environment.


The organizing committee will follow CDC recommendations and hence attendees will be asked to wear face masks indoors at the conference events, which take place in a separate wing of the resort. In addition, Loews is committed to masks/face coverings on the premises as per CDC recommendations (https://cdn.loewshotels.com/loewshotels.com-2466770763/cms/pressroom/a_072921_loews_hotels_co_safety_protocols.pdf), which currently means all guests and Loews team members are requested to wear masks indoors.


The opening reception and breakfasts are currently planned to be outdoors to minimize risks of transmission. Poster sessions will be held in the Grand Ballroom Foyer and Salon A, which have a combined capacity of 1000 people, thus assuring social distancing will be possible. Similarly, the closing banquet and the talks will be held in Ballrooms BC, with a banquet seating capacity of 440 (we will cap attendance at 200 to assure the possibility of social distancing). 


Of course, we are keeping a close eye on the developments in the US. In the event that the conference cannot be held due to COVID-19, we offer either complementary registration when the conference is held at a later date (to which we are committed) or a return of your registration fees (minus a small 2.9% credit card fee) if you cancel by the registration deadline of October 31, 2021.
