The ISPSO Annual Meeting in Berlin 2020 postponed until 2021
Emailed: 22 March 2020

Dear ISPSO-members

With great regret we inform you that this year’s ISPSO conference in Berlin has to be postponed due to the corona epidemic. This was decided by the ISPSO Board of Directors in an extraordinary meeting on Tuesday evening (Copenhagen time).

Together with Moritz we have gathered ideas of when the Covid-19 crises could hopefully be over, and we have looked at different scenarios. Health and safety have been a priority, but we have also looked at financial risks and practicalities. We have discussed online solutions, postponing to the autumn 2020 etc.  We decided to postpone until June/July 2021 as the best and most realistic solution.  We are sorry for the disappointment that hereby is imposed on you, and will keep you informed as new arrangements are made.

We will return with guidance on how to deal with refund arrangements.

The board is also working on how to conduct the ISPSO Annual General Meeting online, which usually takes place at members day.

We are also thinking about online activities to help keep the society alive, connected and kicking in these difficult times.

Kind regards

Steen Visholm, ISPSO President on behalf of the Board
