And then will you cover the expenses (flights, hotels) of people that has booked it already, because I don't think the IETF has an insurance to cover for it.

In the case of the Mobile Congress, they said the cost is over 450 million euros for the cancellation, plus claims that may come. It is a totally different level and it only make sense because big companies decided not to participate.

But in the case of IETF we are individuals, not companies and the size of the meeting, and consequently the risks are totally different. Clearly the Canada government will not allow anyone with risk of infecting others to come into the country, so the IETF is already covered by that.

There is no such reason to cancel it. It will be only needed if our meeting is in China.

    I think it should be cancelled.
    It is not a good perspective to cancel something that is dear, but under 
    exceptional circumstances there might be need of exceptional measures.

Should it be considered a safe and responsible move to go ahead with this meeting or should we be looking at an entirely virtual meeting in light of the situation?
