To be held at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, AR

MARAC is postponed

Due to the developing and uncertain COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation, we regret to inform you that the organizers have decided to postpone MARAC 2020 to a later date.  There were multiple reasons for this hard decision but we felt that given the fluid and rapidly changing situation, which includes the increasing implementation of travel restrictions at Universities, that cancelling the meeting was the only clear course of action.
The organizing committee will be monitoring the progression of the situation and will provide details about the rescheduling of the meeting in due course.  We apologize for any travel-related disruptions this has caused. 
Thank you for your understanding during this time.
