MEETINGS AND EVENTS This page is hidden
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation and are acutely aware of the uncertainty around whether restrictions on group events and travel will continue into July. If that is the case, we will consider whether we can operate the conference on-line – in that case, we envision that registration costs will be reduced or waived and will provide partial/full refunds to those who have already paid.
In the event that we have to cancel the meeting entirely, we will refund the meeting registration cost to delegates who have already paid.
We are sure that people are reluctant to register given this uncertainty. The best way to confirm your interest in the meeting going forward in some capacity is to submit your abstract via the instructions on this page. It is not a requirement to register and pay the fee to submit an abstract.
