    Is there already a prediction if the meeting is going ahead (due to Coronavirus)? And is there an emergency plan in case it is cancelled? e.g. what happens to a registration fees that was already paid?

    • louisecolville says:

      We are planning to review the situation in early-May. Our preferred option is to postpone the meeting to 2021, in which case registration fees already received can be carried forward or there will be an option for a refund.
      One factor in our decision of whether to postpone will the numbers that have registered. If this is too low we will have to postpone regardless of the situation with coronavirus because it will not be financially viable for us to go ahead.
      Best wishes,

    Dear Louise,

    Thank you for this information. It is a pity, but I think that it would be more careful to postpone the meeting in 2021.
    I hope that all is OK for you and your family.
    Take care of you
    Warm wishes
    Françoise Corbineau
