The challenging situation created by the COVID-19 pandemic prompted thorough consultations with our partners and supporters to decide the way-forward regarding our annual meeting.  Currently the situation and regulations vary between countries and from month to month.

The LOC is positive that the situation will improve in the next 4-6 months and has therefore decided to carry on with the meeting arrangements as planned. For now, we will continue with marketing the physical meeting and sending out a call for abstracts, but will re-assess the situation in the coming months. 

We are committed to providing a safe and secure meeting space, adhering to all health and safety regulations and delivering a meeting conducive to collaboration, networking and sharing of information.
