About SIA2020 & COVID-19

The current situation with the spread of COVID-19 and the measures that are being taken by local and governmental institutions to contain it, have made the celebration of our conference In Miami Spring into Action unfeasible.

There are too many factors working against the conference – at this time – to foresee a peaceful, enjoyable and productive event. Therefore:


Our plans are to offer this event again as soon as the conditions permit it. We believe the program will probably resemble the one in place now, since most of our presenters have said they would gladly present at a later date. Those that cannot incur in a double expense – to come back again – have offered to give their proposed lecture virtually.

We will prepare to hold the event this this summer sincerely hoping that our current situation with COVID-19 will have substantially subsided by then.

ATIF will refund absolutely everyone that desires to obtain a refund – you just have to ask for it (Please use this form). The alternative is to carry this payment towards the future event in summer. This would also guarantee your registration.

We are very sorry for this major inconvenience. A lot of hard work, time and money were already invested in this event and we hope that everyone will understand that it is not because of our lack of effort that this postponement is happening.

On the bright side, SPRING INTO ACTION is not disappearing, it is only taking a brief hiatus until this summer.

Our warmest regards to all,

In Miami Spring into Action Organizing Committee
