The Organizing Committee of the Congress has been closely observing the global outbreak of the COVID-19 disease and its consequences, including those which might impact international conferences scheduled for the summer months of 2020. In the face of the pandemic spread of Covid-19, after considering and evaluating all the implications, as well as the forecasts on the progress of the disease, the Organizing Committee in Kraków together with the ICOS Board of Directors believe that it is impossible to hold the Congress on the scheduled date. Therefore, we announce the postponement of the Congress to 22-27th of August 2021.
We sincerely regret any inconvenience and hope to meet all of you in less turbulent times in Kraków next year.
In connection with the decision of the postponement of the ICOS Congress to 22-27th of August, 2021, the Early Bird registration has been extended to the 31st of March, 2021.
The Organizing Committee would also like to inform you that all registration fees received, abstracts accepted, and the conference programme already prepared for this year will be carried over to 2021.
However, we will understand if someone resigns from the Congress or if he or she wants to update his/her abstract. So please inform us about your decision or any changes till the end of 2020.
More information concerning the Congress will appear successively on our website and on Facebook.
