Important ISPA Congress Announcement
Over the past few weeks, ISPA staff along with the C.F. Koo Foundation, our hosts for the international congress in Taipei, have been monitoring the developments with respect to the coronavirus in Taiwan and throughout the region. The Executive Committee convened to review the options and the risk connected to international travel. Based on the information available at this time, it is with great regret that the Executive, in consultation with the C.F. Koo Foundation, has decided to cancel the congress in Taipei which was scheduled for June 1-5, 2020.
ISPA is taking this opportunity to explore the possibility of connecting with you through new digital platforms. We will be continuing with Pitch New Works and are excited to develop our first “online” version of the popular program. We are also exploring the possibility of staging one or more panels in this new format and will keep you updated on these ideas over the coming weeks.
We want to take this opportunity to thank Vivien Ku and her team for all the time and effort already invested in preparation for the congress. We hope to announce another congress in Taipei or the region in the future.
過去的幾週內，我們的工作人員和ISPA 2020台北年會主辦方辜公亮文教基金會 (C. F. Koo Foundation) 一直在關注台灣及亞太地區新型冠狀病毒 (Coronavirus)的發展動態。執行委員會已召開會議，評估可能的方案以及國際旅行相關風險。根據目前所掌握的訊息，與辜公亮文教基金會協商後，ISPA執行委員會非常遺憾地宣布，我們取消原定於2020年6月1日 - 6月5日舉行的台北年會。
ISPA將藉此機會探索線上數位平台帶來的可能性：我們將繼續進行Pitch New Works，為這受歡迎的項目帶來第一個線上版本；我們也正在探索以線上方式舉辦一個或多個座談會的可能性，並將在未來幾週內為您提供相關的最新訊息。
