We are excited by the thousands of quality submissions we have received and the multitude of stellar speakers we have for ICP 2020+. However, along with the rest of the world we are being shattered by forces beyond our control related to the pandemic. These include governmental limitations that restrict large congresses, prohibitions on international travel and movement imposed by many countries, and institutional restrictions on funding travel to and participation in congresses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Given these unprecedented circumstances, IUPsyS and your Prague ICP hosts have had decided that ICP 2020+ will take place online only to protect the safety and health of all delegates.
Delegates already registered for on-line participation do not need to do anything, whilst those who have registered as in-person delegates will be contacted by the ICP 2020+ Secretariat office.
We would obviously have preferred to have hosted you in person in Prague, but rest assured that the ICP 2020+ programme provides you with a rich scientific programme that will go beyond expectations, as well as many options for special events and networking. This novel programme will enable you to participate in both live/real time interactions as well as on-demand engagement, so that you can watch presentations at a time that suits you.
Updates will be published on our website (www.icp2020.com), on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – ICP 2020), and via email.
We look forward to an exciting virtual meeting of our global psychology community at ICP 2020+ this July.
