The 2020 DRK-12 PI Meeting has been cancelled due to health and safety concerns related to COVID-19.
We are sorry to miss the opportunity to meet with you, explore successful approaches to common challenges, and learn about your findings. We are in conversation with the National Science Foundation to determine next steps, so please watch your email for updates and news. In the meantime, if you reserved a hotel room, please contact the Washington Marriott Wardman Park to cancel your reservation.
For those of you who were working on or have submitted a session proposal, please let us know if you would be interested in adapting the presentation to a virtual session in the coming months.
