To the VSS Membership:
We at VSS are committed to free scientific communication across borders. We are aware of and greatly concerned by the developing events with the new administration in the US and will continue to monitor the situation. It remains unclear what the current policy means for international travel and whether the policy will be modified or suspended in the future. VSS has cosigned the statement issued by the American Association for the Advancement of Science condemning the ban.
We are committed to ensuring that, if the situation does not resolve, all of our international colleagues will be able to participate as fully as possible. We will be in touch with more specific information as the situation and policy clarifies.
