Aug 30, 2021 - Sep 2, 2021
The 2021 IGCS Annual Global Meeting is scheduled to be held in on August 30 – September 2 as a fully virtual meeting. It is out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of our international delegates that we have reached the decision to transition the IGCS 2021 Annual Global Meeting, initially planned as a hybrid meeting, to a virtual format only.
IGCS 2021 has been planned as a hybrid event from the beginning, with a strong virtual component for our remote delegates. With the IGCS 2021 Annual Global Meeting becoming fully virtual, you can still meet & network with friends and colleagues from around the globe using the virtual platform and view all the educational sessions and e-posters during the meeting and for 90 days after.
The decision came on August 4th from the IGCS leadership after it was determined that it would not be feasible to hold a meeting in person due to the recent changes in travel restrictions preventing many of our international speakers and attendees from traveling to and from Italy. An increasing number of countries are enforcing quarantine before and/or after traveling internationally and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in the US has issued a level 3 Travel Health Notice for Italy due to COVID-19, indicating a high level of cases in the country.
Please allow until August 6th to see website updates to igcs2021.com and igcs.org take effect regarding the change to a fully virtual meeting.
