Official ISPPD communication: Postponement of ISPPD-12 to 2022

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

Given the continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on international travel restrictions and physical distancing requirements, we have been increasingly concerned about the ability to plan and hold an in-person meeting in Toronto in 2021.

We have therefore decided to postpone the ISPPD-12 Symposium until 2022.

The new dates for the in-person ISPPD-12 Symposium are 19-23 June 2022, which will be held in Toronto.

We believe this is the safest approach for the well-being of our global audience. We are also considering different options for a virtual meeting in 2021 so that we can potentially reach an even wider community.

We look forward to seeing you face to face in Toronto in 2022!

Sincerely,

The ISPPD Board and ISPPD-12 Scientific Organising Committee

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its global implications, we are aware that many of you in the ISPPD-12 community are working tirelessly on COVID-19 in your home countries and we appreciate that this is an anxious time for everyone. As the ISPPD community is a very international one and your health and safety is our main priority, we have come to the decision to postpone the ISPPD-12 Symposium until 2021.

The new dates for the ISPPD-12 Symposium are 20 – 24 June 2021.

Current registrations to the event will be transferred to the new dates.

In the coming weeks we will be updating the website with new dates, registration deadlines, new programme scheduling and additional information. Please view some frequently asked questions and answers below.

The ISPPD Symposium is your meeting. The community depends on your active participation in sharing your research, your insights and your expertise. ISPPD-12 will be worth the wait!

The ISPPD Board, ISPPD-12 Symposium Committees, and Symposium Organisers kindly ask for your patience and support, and we wish you, your colleagues and families good health and resilience. Our thoughts are with all of you.

Warmest regards,

Upton Allen, Cynthia Whitney, Philippe De Wals
