The CASCA Executive Committee has met, and, in collaboration with the Organizing Committee from the Department of Anthropology at Western University, we decided not to proceed with an online format for our conference, and are withdrawing from the Virtual Congress proposed by the Federation. The CASCA 2020 conference is therefore cancelled.

For the time being, our main focus is our members’ health and well-being, and we consider that this is the responsible thing for us to do, as heartbreaking as it may be—especially given all the fantastic hard work put in by the organizing committee, Kim Clark, Andrew Walsh, Greg Beckett and Pamela Block, and of course Karli Whitmore. On my behalf and on behalf of the Executive Committee, I would like to express my profound gratitude for all their efforts.

If you have already registered for the Congress, your registration fees will be reimbursed in full. Please request your refund before April 30, 2020, which is the Federation’s deadline, by contacting
