ESVONC EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE STATEMENT ON COVID 19

ESVONC EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE STATEMENT ON COVID 19

Dear ESVONC members and registrants,  

Because of the growing concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic and the travel restrictions placed on our speakers and delegates, your executive committee has had little choice but to cancel ESVONC 2020 in Siracusa at the end of May. We would hope to postpone the meeting for 1 year and reconvene at the same venue in May of 2021, though this of course is not yet finalised. 

For those registered for the congress, we can arrange a full refund of your registration, or you may choose to leave your registration as it is for the rearranged meeting. Please contact our conference secretariat for a refund, but please be mindful that this will be a busy time for the conference organisation team and there may be some delay in response. 

We are naturally disappointed at having to postpone the congress, but the well being of our delegates and supporters and our responsibility to the wider community is paramount and we are confident that this is the right decision. 

Take care!

Ana, Iain, Jérôme, Neil, Irina.
