Southern Regional Algebra Conference 2020


Dear SRAC 2020 Participants,
It is with regret that we are postponing SRAC 2020.  Reports from the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) have not been positive recently.  This has compelled several participants to cancel their trips to SRAC 2020, and many more have been emailing the organizing committee on worries about this virus outbreak. After discussing it with our administration, we decided to reschedule SRAC 2020 to March 19-21, 2021. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and hope that you would make arrangements to attend the rescheduled meeting. The new program will aim to accommodate all talks on the current schedule. 

For those who have booked hotel rooms, we recommend that you cancel these bookings as soon as possible. Special rates will be provided later for you to book again.  As for those of you who booked flight tickets, some US airline companies are waiving change fees for any domestic bookings made this month. We hope that you would qualify for it and be able to make that change.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
