Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we regret to inform you that we have decided to postpone the Animal Advocacy Conference until 2021. The situation is getting worse rapidly all over the world, and postponing the conference is the best way forward for a number of reasons. The WHO recommends to avoid face-to-face contact and not to organize gatherings with many people. Also the numerous international travel restrictions make it no longer viable to hold the conference this year.
Registered participants will be fully refunded. We will also get in touch with registered participants in the next few days and have already started the process of arranging the refunds.
Although it is difficult to predict how the situation will develop over the next months, our tentative plan is to hold the conference in June 2021 at Kent.
We will update you as soon as more information is available. Presenters of all accepted conference contributions will be given the opportunity to present at the next conference, based on the same or an updated abstract.
We would like to express our solidarity and sympathy with everyone affected and also like to thank everyone for their understanding.
We hope that you and your loved ones all stay safe and healthy!
With the very best wishes and hoping to see everyone next year,
The Organizing Team
