Dear All,

There is no easy solution to this unnecessary problem: Leaving the GRC 
planning as is will preclude those from many Muslim countries from 
attending; Moving the 3D cryo-EM GRC to Mexico, Canada, or another Latin 
American country, will create problems for those who need to travel back 
to the US afterwards and could become locked out. Maybe the best 
solutions is to put the organization of the 3DEM GRC on halt until this 
unpleasant US Constitutional crisis has been resolved.

I receive many emails per day and, although I try,
there is no guarantee that I will actually read each incoming email.
Moreover, our Spam filters can be strikt and sometimes make
legitimate emails disappear (try the gmail accounts, alternatively)
