This news will certainly disappoint those who were looking forward to seeing Huang speak on stage, but for most others, there's no need to worry. While Huang will not be giving a keynote, all the announcements that would have been shared within his speech will instead be published as news posts on Nvidia's official website.

These announcements will go live on Tuesday, March 24, and they will be followed up by an investor call with Huang, which will be accessible to "other listeners." Presumably, "other listeners" refers to the press, but it's also possible that Nvidia is discussing some way to open the call up to the public as well.

Nvidia says "continuing public health uncertainties" related to COVID-19 are the primary reason for the shut-down of Huang's keynote. However, other parts of "GTC Digital," such as live webinars, research posters, and recorded talks, will still be available on March 25.

GTC is the latest in a long series of tech conferences that have seen substantial format changes or even outright cancellations due to COVID-19. We hope, for the sake of the public, that these steps will prove effective when it comes to slowing down the spread of this virus.

These single-company events need to die out anyway. This just low-cost advertising.

Word has it Lisa Su has his leather jacket. Now he has to rely on T-shirts 2 sizes too small for him. His nickname is T-shirts now.

Food for thought I was the one that invented the jacket joke many years back.
