As a result of the non-availability of the Scottish Event Campus recently communicated (see link below), the joint XXXIII Congress of the International Academy of Pathology and 32nd Congress of the European Society of Pathology scheduled for Glasgow for 5 to 9 December 2020 will now be delivered as a virtual event. This is an exciting opportunity for the global pathology world to experience this innovative methodology in such a wide ranging way for the first time.
The exact format of the virtual ESP-IAP Congress 2020 is being confirmed by the joint organisers, the ESP and the British Division of the IAP, with our professional congress organisers, CPO HANSER SERVICE, and will be communicated as soon as possible. There will be a reduction in registration fees. Revised dates for registration will be communicated soon. All existing registrations will be carried forward, although those delegates who do not wish to participate in a virtual conference will receive full reimbursement. The content of the meeting will be largely unchanged, with the addition of dedicated sessions for the evolving pathology of Covid-19 infection. All speakers and conveners will be contacted shortly.
Authors of accepted abstracts will be given the opportunity to present their work as communicated in the abstract notifications - and will soon be contacted with further details.
Please keep looking at the various websites (www.esp-congress.org, www.bdiap.org, www.esp-pathology.org) for updates and FAQs which will be communicated frequently.
We remain devoted to providing you with the best cutting-edge pathology science, this time, in a novel, engaging format.
We thank you for your continued support and look forward to welcoming you to our virtual meeting in December 2020.
