However, with the current uncertainty, it is possible that they may not be able to proceed with the physical conference, under those circumstances they will explore whether a virtual conference is possible or may defer to a later date.

Updates will be posted here and through the DDI Users list (sign up) and on Twitter @DDIAlliance.
