ICRS 2020 Postponed - Information for participants

Since the beginning of March, we all have been faced with the very dynamic and global spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Based on developments in Germany and worldwide, we do not want to risk supporting the spread of COVID-19 by the symposium. We also recognize that the likelihood of travel restrictions being fully lifted in time for the meeting is extremely low.

Thus, together with our partners, we have come to the very difficult, but necessary, decision to postpone the 14th ICRS to the week of 18 - 23 July 2021. 

Please note these dates in your calendar for the year 2021!

New plans for the 2021 meeting are already underway. We are optimistic that we will soon be able to provide you with information on the following points:

  • Providing current registrants with the option of either getting a refund or carrying over payment to 2021
  • Modifications of the scientific program
  • Dates for a new Call for Abstracts
  • Other implications resulting from the postponement to 2021

For now, the registration for ICRS 2020 is closed.

We are aware that the postponement of the ICRS 2020 will have a wide range of consequences for the majority of our participants and we deeply apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. COVID-19 is affecting every aspect of our lives, and ensuring the health and safety of all symposium participants is our top priority. We look forward to implement the 14th ICRS in Bremen, now in July 2021.
