US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued a special message Friday night, February 27, 2015, to postpone the ACE Software Developer Session originally scheduled for March 3-4, 2015 in Washington, DC. The event is being postponed until further notice due to the midnight shutdown deadline over funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). CBP issued the following message:

The 2015 ACE Software Developer Session, scheduled for March 3rd and 4th in Washington, D.C. has been postponed until further notice.

As mentioned in our previous message, and as you may now be aware from media reports, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing for a shut down. We apologize for the inconvenience but these are circumstances beyond our control.

We recognize the importance of this conference and will be rescheduling this event as soon as possible. When we have information on a new date, we will provide an update and new registration details. In the interim we will be posting all of the presentation material on our website at the following link: http://www.cbp.gov/document/guidance/2015-ace-software-developer-session
