Dear attendee of IPC 2020,
We are very sorry to inform you that the International Peatland Congress in Tallinn has been postponed to 2021 due to the general concerns surrounding the COVID-19 virus and the official suggestion of the Estonian Health Board dated from 10 March 2020 to defer all international events. As your comfort and safety is our top priority, it has been decided that this is the best course of action to give as many people as possible the chance to attend the congress without exposing them to health risks.
All registrations that have been made so far will automatically be transferred into next year. However, if you would still like to cancel your registration, and receive a reimbursement, please e-mail the congress secretariat: firstname.lastname@example.org not later than 30 April 2020. In this case, a 35 EUR handling fee will be subtracted from the paid sum as per the cancellation terms.
All hotel bookings made through the Congress accommodation system have been cancelled free of charge by the secretariat. Bookings made directly should be withdrawn by the attendee according to booking terms. Do not hesitate to contact the secretariat for assistance in case of problems
The specifics about the submitted abstracts and all other technical questions will be addressed within 2 – 3 weeks. We will keep you up to date via the event’s homepage, Facebook page, LinkedIn and e-mail as well.
We will try to make the best out of this unfortunate situation and are giving our best to make the transition as easy as possible. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding immensely!
