The Symposium on Second Language Writing (SSLW) is an international conference with the vast majority of presenters and participants coming from around the world. As such, the global spread of COVID-19 will have important implications for its participants.
The Organizing Committee held an emergency meeting on March 6 to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on SSLW20ist and its participants, and reached the decision to cancel the conference originally scheduled in Istanbul for June 19-21, 2020.
The decision was made primarily to protect the health of the participants and their communities, and to minimize the inconvenience to participants associated with travel disruptions and last-minute cancellations.
If you have already paid the registration, SSLW will be working with Eventbrite to issue a full refund.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
