Founding Members’ Congress
May 9th-11th, 2021
Read 2020 Postponement Notice from the Board
Dear IPSO Attendee,
It is with much disappointment that we are announcing the postponement of the inaugural IPSO Founding Members’ Congress, in Vienna. With the increasing global spread of COVID-19 and subsequent increased number of travel restrictions and public health measures, we must cancel our May 2020 meeting. We will reschedule the Congress for May 9-11, 2021, at the same venue in Vienna. Based on the high level of enthusiasm as we have been planning this Congress, we have decided to extend from a 2-day meeting to a 3-day meeting to allow for more oral abstract presentations and a wider range of symposiums.
For those who also wish to attend the European Stroke Organization (ESO) meeting, the new IPSO dates will allow you time to travel to their 2021 conference location in Helsinki.
We can provide reimbursement of registration fees to those who have registered for the congress. Alternatively, we are also offering delegates who have paid for their registration the option to put these funds towards attending IPSO 2021. For any travel booked, many airlines are offering cancellation fee waivers or credits due to the travel concerns and quarantines in effect. If you have booked travel to attend IPSO, please check the terms and conditions with your travel provider directly.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the cancellation of the 2020 meeting, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused, and even sorrier for those of you with loved ones affected by this disease.
We look forward to seeing you all in Vienna in 2021 for an even more robust meeting. We have been impressed by the high level of interest in IPSO. We all seem to share the same sense of urgency to bring our various disciplines together to improve that care of children with cerebrovascular diseases.
More soon as we brainstorm about ways to continue to advance our mission through web-based conferences. We plan to move forward with creating IPSO committees, working on educational materials and consensus-based guidelines, etc.
In the meanwhile, wishing you and your communities well during these uncertain times.
The IPSO Founding Members’ Congress will be held in Vienna, Austria from May 9th-11th, 2021. The mission of the Congress is to unify the global community of professionals engaged in research and clinical care for children with cerebrovascular diseases, and chart a path forward for multinational, multidisciplinary efforts.
