Following in the footsteps of the Mobile World Congress (MWC), the Game Developers Conference (GDC), and some other events, NVIDIA decided to cancel its GPU Technology Conference (GTC). Instead of hosting this conference in San Jose on March 22-26, NVIDIA decided to make it a web-only event due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

It's believed that NVIDIA will present its new Ampere GPU architecture during its GTC 2020 keynote.

Here's NVIDIA's statement:
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.

NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang will still deliver a keynote address, which will be available exclusively by livestream. We’re working to schedule that and will share details once they’re available.

We will be working with our conference speakers to begin publishing their talks online beginning in the weeks ahead. Please visit https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/gtc/ for updates.

Additionally, for those in NVIDIA’s developer program, we plan to schedule availability with our researchers, engineers and solution architects to answer technical questions.

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.
