Due to the developing coronavirus outbreak, we are extending the abstract submission and Early Bird registration deadline for the Closing Meeting of IGCP 653 until April 15th, 2020.
The Danish authorities have taken precautionary measures to delay the outbreak here. This includes a ban on all flights from ‘high risk areas’ until further notice, and a general advice to avoid larger gatherings as well as avoiding public transport if possible. At the university level, this further means groups larger than 50 people are not allowed, and all social gatherings should be avoided until further notice. Therefore, we advise all participants to postpone making travel and accommodation bookings in connection with the conference unless reimbursement is guaranteed.
We are monitoring the situation closely and will follow the guidelines provided by the national public health authorities.
We obviously hope that the GOBEnhagen meeting will take place in June as planned and we thus continue our efforts to organize the meeting in line with our original schedule. But, in the event that we will have to cancel, or postpone, the conference, all paid fees associated with the conference via the online registration system will be reimbursed.
On behalf of the organizers,
