*** 2020 Safar Symposium Update ***
Due to health concerns related to the corona virus and emerging travel restrictions and bans at various universities, we have decided that it is best to postpone the April 29-30, 2020, Safar Symposium until a later date, hopefully sometime in the fall. We are disappointed about this unfortunate development, but believe that it is the wisest decision.
