2020 Conference Cancellation Notice


Due to the uncertainty related to COVID-19, as well as restrictions on University travel, the 2020 Conference on the Impact of Export Controls on Higher Education and Scientific Institution has been canceled. We will be sending out additional information about the 2021 conference in the coming days, but please see the following information concerning hotel and registration cancellation:

  1. All room reservations made within the room block have been cancelled. If you need proof of cancellation, or you booked outside of the designated room block, please contact the Sheraton Philadelphia University City hotel directly (215-387-8000).
  2. All registration will be cancelled and refunded in full. If you need a receipt for your refund, please contact Michelle Ruggia at mruggia@upenn.edu. As a courtesy, and to allow time for processing, please wait at least a week before contacting Michelle.

In the meantime, Penn is working with the Executive Board to determine next steps for the conference. In addition, the AUECO Executive Board is looking at ways to deliver content in lieu of the conference. Please keep an eye for more information.

We’re very disappointed that we had to make this decision, but stay in, stay safe, and stay healthy!

Thank you for your understanding,

The Penn Team
