Postponement of the 26th IPC Session to autumn 2021

Dear Friends of the IPC,
We hope you and your families, colleagues, and friends remain in good health.

Governments worldwide have implemented appropriate precautions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These include restrictions on international travel and convening large meetings. There is significant uncertainty when these precautions may be reasonably lifted.

It is therefore infeasible to ensure that a Session of the IPC organized in 2020 would be to the standard of quality and would achieve the purpose that the IPC community and Member Nations expect.

The Twenty-Sixth IPC Session and study tours will thus be postponed from October 2020 to the autumn of 2021.
Exact dates will be announced as soon as possible.

Please monitor this website (https://www.ipc2020.it/) where any relevant announcements will be published.
