Update: The COVID-19 situation is rapidly evolving and we have decided to run this year’s IDE competition event on a smaller scale over 5 days instead of aggregating all participants to the same venue on the same day. While we will not have more than 80 participants at the competition venue on any given day, we will have to monitor the situation and follow any upcoming government advisory pertaining to public events.
