Dear ITC Community Members,
The impact of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has rapidly increased over the past few days and weeks worldwide, with many countries adopting strict measures to slow the spread of the pandemic, including strict quarantine measures, the restriction of travel to and from Europe, closure of borders and the cancellation of major events worldwide. We want to reassure our community that the ITC and the University of Luxembourg (UL) have been closely monitoring developments. The UL has been coordinating closely with Luxembourg’s National Health Authorities and preparing for all possible contingencies and eventualities. The health and safety of our Community are of the utmost importance.
Despite the Conference being 3.5 months away, given how quickly the situation is developing, unfortunately the ITC 2020 Conference will not take place from 14-17 July 2020 and that the Conference registration has been blocked. We are looking into potential options for postponement of the Conference to a further date in about a year's time, with the exact date to be confirmed. Please be advised that all registration fees will be fully reimbursed via the payment method used when registering for the Conference. Please bear with us as this may take a few weeks to receive. We will continue to keep the Community informed on the status of the conference. Please keep an eye on this ITC-conference Announcements page which will be updated regularly as the situation develops. For further information on the virus, please refer to the following websites: WHO and Luxembourg Government Info Page.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Local Organizing Committee at [email protected]
Please stay healthy and safe. Best wishes from Luxembourg,
