Meeting Description:

In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, and after extensive deliberation, the organizing committee for CLS 56 has made the difficult decision to cancel the conference. This is a very unfortunate result for all those involved, but this seemed like the most prudent action given the recommendations of the CDC and WHO, and recent statements made by the administration of The University of Chicago.

CLS 56 still plans on publishing proceedings. We want to assure all authors that their work will still be recognized. CLS 56 is also considering whether or not to hold alternative programming. However, we are not currently committed to any of the options. We will update with further information if we plan to hold an alternative event.
