TED 2020: 43rd Conference
The TED presidential line, with the support of the Executive Committee, has decided to take steps toward canceling the fall conference. We made this decision for several reasons. Most importantly, we are concerned about the health and well-being of the conference attendees. There was also a high probability that the conference would be cancelled per orders from the California governor. Conferences are in phase 4 of his opening plan. Finally, many faculty have indicated that their university will not permit them to travel or that they will not receive funds to travel because of reductions to university budget.
We are suspending proposal submissions and looking into other professional activities for TED members. The TED presidential line would like to offer some professional webinars (with moderated discussions) on topics that are of high value to our membership. We will be seeking your input on topics for these webinars soon. We know that we do not have the capacity to hold a virtual conference, but we will try to do something that is professionally valuable.
