The health and well-being of the Wireshark community and SharkFest conference attendees is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the updates and advisories regarding COVID-19. At this time, we have no plans to cancel SharkFest'20 US in July. If the situation escalates and we have to cancel the conference, all attendees will receive full refunds of their registration fees.
