Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for your continued interest and support in ISPNO 2020. Due to the current situation and global uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus), the difficult decision has been made to reschedule ISPNO2020 until December 13 - 16, 2020. The location will be the same and all hotel and registration rates will remain in place. All abstracts and registration will be automatically transferred to the rescheduled meeting. If you are unfortunately unable to attend the December meeting, all cancellations will be refunded without cancellation charge at this time.

Further details regarding current and future reservations, as well as accommodations, will be sent out separately. If you have any specific questions at any time, please contact the ISPNO 2020 secretariat at

Thank you for your patience as we strive to make the best of this situation we find ourselves in. Given the travel restrictions and potential health risks, it is clear that the decision to reschedule the conference is the most prudent path to take. We trust that the threat will soon pass and we look forward to seeing you in Karuizawa in December. We hope you will keep your excitement and motivation up for ISPNO 2020, despite the schedule change.

If you have questions or need additional information, do not hesitate to contact us. We want to ensure as much clarity and communication as possible in this difficult time.

Thank you, and see you in December.
