Announcement May 22: After much deliberation, it is with great disappointment that we announce the COVID-19 pandemic has made it inadvisable to conduct an in-person SciX conference in Sparks, NV this October. We are exploring options for delivering on our promise to facilitate a robust scientific exchange in 2020. Please contact scix@scixconference.org with questions.
