2020 ICCP Meeting in China to be deferred
|March 30, 2020||Filled under News||
Dear ICCP Members, we regret to inform you that, due to the global concerns regarding COVID-19 pandemic, the forthcoming 72nd ICCP Meeting in China will not take place as planned.
This decision has not been trivial and ICCP would like to acknowledge the substantial efforts of the 2020 Organizing Committee, and Shifeng in particular. The committee has been extremely active in not only arranging venues, accommodation, general items (satchels, lanyards etc.) but in obtaining the necessary permissions and sponsorships. They have also kept us informed of the developments in China. We thank them for all their diligence and care in the preparation of the meeting.
ICCP council has also been in contact with TSOP, as the 2020 was planned as a joint ICCP-TSOP Meeting. Councils of both organizations and China Organizing Committee have agreed to re-schedule the 2020 meeting for 2025.
We can only hope that soon we will be back in normality and ICCP activities will go ahead as per usual. It is anticipated that future meetings will occur as previously advised i.e. Prague in 2021; New Delhi 2022; Patras 2023; Freiberg 2024 and then pending from General Assembly confirmation China in 2025.
We will keep you informed for any development, as well as for any ICCP business that will arise in the next period.
Dr. Angeles Borrego
