In light of school closures and travel advisories related to COVID-19, the decision has been made to cancel the in-person Science Atlantic Psychology conference at Grenfell this year. Please check with your school's Science Atlantic Psychology Sponsor to learn whether the conference will go ahead in an electronic format. The decision to cancel the conference was not made lightly, but the most important thing is to ensure the health and safety of all of those involved. To the students who had planned to attend the conference, good luck with your research, this is not a year any of us will soon forget. We look forward to seeing the conference up and running again next year. Stay healthy!
