congress postponed to june 2021

In light of the global combat and precautions with the Coronavirus, COVID-19, outbreak, the Organizing Committee of the 14th Interpraevent Congress 2020 (IP2020) has decided to postpone the congress to the first week of June 2021: 31.05 - 03.06. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.

We are however committed to hold the congress once it is safe to do so, and have already started planning for this. Updated information about the congress in 2021 will be posted here and on our social media channels.

Our aim is to reuse as much as possible of the scientific program, excursions and other activities.

The postponement raises a number of questions, the most essential are:

Registrationsand refunds:

Please note that the registrations made for the congress will remain in place for the new congress dates. This also include registration to any of the excursions and hotel bookings made at the Radisson Blu Royal through the registration form. For those who have booked rooms at other hotels through our registration site, they will in due course be refunded for these.

An email with updated registration details will shortly go out to all registered delegates. Should the new dates conflict with already planned arrangements, registered delegates will be entitled to a full refund for cancellations received by 1. October 2020.

travel and accommodation:

The IP2020 does not have the possibility to reimburse any travel or accommodation expenses that have been booked outside of the congress registration form. We recommend contacting your insurance provider, travel and accommodation provider, or your institution for refunds.

submissions:

Due to the postponement, we encourage all submitters to stand by their submission. We will give the authors the opportunity (if needed) to add new findings. Submitters will be contacted individually by the Scientific Committee about this.

News and information about the submissions for the IP2021 can be found on the “Contributions” page on this website.

program:

All key-note speakers will be contacted individually by their contact person from IP2020. The Scientific Board will contact individually all authors of accepted orals and posters abstracts, and students about their contributions to the scientific program.

What if the Corona outbreak is still a problem in 2021? 

The Organizing Committee will continue to monitor the ongoing situation closely. Updates and other announcements will be made on here on the congress website and directly to registered delegates, authors and sponsors.

QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS

Please contact interpraevent@ccnorway.no for any questions or concerns related to your registration or sponsorship.

Our hearts go out to our many friends in the affected regions. We encourage everyone to stay safe, and we look forward to reuniting when this is behind us. Please rest assured that in these turbulent and challenging times, we will do our very best to respond to any query at the earliest possible time and that we will make our very best efforts to make the 14th Interpraevent Congress in June 2021 a truly memorable event for all.
