We had more participants than at any Vegas meeting in memory, we got a lot accomplished, knocking off two work items and fourteen UTIs, plus several interps. (There are a few papers that I think are awaiting "Post", so there may be more UTIs resolved.)

The phase 3 trials for the COVID-19 vaccines are scheduled to end in October, 2021.  It is realistic to assume that any activity involving travel or a large in-person gathering would be a risk if scheduled before late next Fall.
