it is with deep regret that we announce that we have to postpone our IASPM Benelux conference. During the past week, the situation in Belgium has intensified, and yesterday, the Belgian government took a series of far-reaching measures in an effort to dam the further spread of the new Corona virus Covid-19. The local committee and the IASPM Benelux board have convened a number of times with the University administration to discuss the possible impact on our conference. Simultaneously, we began working out alternatives. This morning, 13 March 2020, the dice was cast.
The conference, originally planned to take place on 14–16 May 2020, will be postponed to 15–17 October 2020. We aim to keep the same schedule outline as for our May conference, including our two keynotes, the opening reception (15 October), a walking dinner, and so forth.
Registration for the October conference is open on https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/conferences/iaspm/registration/.
More information on the postponed conference can be found on https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/conferences/iaspm/.
Thank you kindly for your understanding, and our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this postponement causes you. Best wishes and stay healthy!
The IASPM Benelux board and the local conference committee.
