NVIDIA has decided to shift GTC 2020 on March 22-26 to an online event due to growing concern over the Coronavirus.
“This decision to move the event online instead of at the San Jose Convention Center reflects our top priority: the health and safety of our employees, our partners and our customers,” a note on the company’s blog states.
NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang will still deliver a keynote address, which will be available exclusively by livestream. The company is working to schedule that and will share details once they’re available.It is also working with the conference speakers to begin publishing their talks online beginning in the weeks ahead. (Updates can be found on https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/gtc/).
Additionally, for those in NVIDIA’s developer program, the company is planning to schedule availability with its researchers, engineers and solution architects to answer technical questions.
The website further states, “Those who have registered for a GTC pass will receive a full refund. Stay tuned for details.”
“We’re grateful to the great many individuals and partners who have worked to support this event and thank them for their understanding during these unusual times.”
