Dear All,

With the appearance of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States, UC Berkeley has cancelled most larger, in-person, campus-sponsored events. This means the POWER Conference will not be held as originally planned on March 20th, 2020. 

After reviewing several alternatives, we decided to convert the 2020 POWER Conference to four separate webinar sessions in April. We are still developing the details, but are focused on ensuring that the event’s innovative research is presented and discussed in a compelling manner. 

We will greatly miss being with you all for Q&A and networking. We hope to create some of that energy through the virtual platform and social media. We are working to make sure the platform allows active engagement in the discussion. 

Details of how to participate in the conference and take part in the discussion will be shared with registrants and on our website.

We hope you will join us at the virtual POWER Conference.

Please do not hesitate to contact us via email at [email protected], or by phone at 510.642.9590, if you have any questions or concerns.
