COVID-19 Precautions

Creating a safe, worry-free experience is our top priority

The SSCI 2021 conference Organizing Committee remains vigilant in monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. SSCI is planned as a hybrid format with both onsite and virtual options that will allow participants who, for a variety of reasons, may not be able to join the in-person conference in Orlando, FL, USA.

Keeping You Safe – Working closely with the Caribe Royale Hotel in Orlando as well as Federal, State, and Local public health officials, we will incorporate required safety protocols to provide participants a safe, positive, and productive in-person experience to meet your goals.

Before traveling to the conference, we recommend that you stay informed of any information your local health agencies may make available. Please take the required precautions to protect yourself.
