After much consideration, the Organising Committee has decided to postpone ICCEC 2020 to 15 – 18 December 2020. Over the past few weeks we have received multiple requests from delegates for a postponement based on institutional travel restrictions in many countries and the declaration of a Coronavirus Pandemic by WHO. Although these occurrences are totally out of our control, we have a responsibility to minimise negative health impacts that result from large gatherings.
We hope that the Coronavirus outbreak will have subsided considerably by December and that colleagues from around the world who have been looking forward to this conference will be able to join us in person. Some airlines are issuing refund vouchers that can be used to travel within the next 12 months. Your registration fees and accommodation will roll-over to December. We will keep you informed of further developments.
Thank you for your patience and for the numerous messages of support we have received from delegates and speakers. At this very difficult time, we acknowledge the sadness and loss being experienced around the globe.
