CERF 2023 Conference Theme

Resilience & Recovery 

The COVID-19 pandemic necessitated a shift to a virtual conference in 2021 and we applaud the tremendous efforts of the 2021 organizing committee for bringing us a successful and wonderful event. However, we are pleased to announce that, for 2023, we are planning on a return to an in-person conference. In consideration of what we’ve all been through over these past few years, we’ve chosen “Resilience and Recovery” as our 2023 conference theme to reflect not only the scientific context of those terms but also the resilience of our own scientific society and community as we recover and move forward.
