Statement on the Postponement of the 36th EPS


Due to the alert level and the containment measures recommended by the Health Authorities to the world situation due to the COVID-19 coronavirus and the recommendation not to attend conferences and events worldwide, EPS2020 COMMUNICATES:

  • That after debating it, the Organizing Committee, together with the Technical Secretariat and, because the current priority is the health of all participants of the 36th EPS 2020 and 12th IPS Symposium, the postponement of the Symposium scheduled for August 30th to September 4th, 2020 is determined at the Meliá Sitges Hotel, Sitges (Barcelona, Spain), proceeding in accordance with the guidelines of the Health Authorities.
  • That the new dates for the Symposium will be from August 29th to September 3rd, 2021 at the same venue, maintaining, as much as possible, the scientific program.
  • That the details arising from this postponement will be continuously reported. A space has been set up to give information and thus support both attendees and speakers and collaborators of the symposiums scheduled.

In addition, we wish to inform you, in a special way, that the Symposium will be held with the same schedule as the one originally scheduled (from Sunday to Friday); For this reason, it is our intention to keep the scientific program (invited speakers, keynote speaker…) to the maximum extentpossible.

We are confident that in 2021 we will be able to hold a successful 36th EPS and 12th IPS Symposium with the scientific quality that EPS guarantees in its events.
