The Covid-19 virus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and National Health Authorities have recommendations that include social distancing. Many universities and organisations have banned travel and meeting attendance. The HPRG Council has been monitoring the situation carefully and constantly so we can reasonably assess the risks. The safety of our guests and speakers is paramount and we are taking this situation extremely seriously. Given the current trajectory of the spread of the virus, and the measures that organisations are putting in place to limit spread of the virus, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Conference.
While it is disappointing that we cannot run this conference in 2020, our current plan is to revisit this topic in 2022 (the 2021 conference planning is already well advanced - details will be posted soon).
