Statement of the EPS 2020 Conference on COVID-19

36th EPS 2020 & 12th IPS has been postponed to 2022

Over the last few weeks, we have been following the evolution of the growing impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak both locally and internationally closely.

Due to the increased spread worldwide, and because our first priority is to ensure the health and well-being of all the attendees to this event, we, the Organizing Committee of the EPS2020 together with the EPS board, have decided to postpone the EPS2021 Symposium, scheduled for August 29th to September 3th 2021 since the current priority is the health of all the participants of the 36th EPS 2020 and 12th IPS Symposium.

For the mentioned above, we would like to announce that the new dates for the Symposium are August 28th to September 2nd, 2022 at the same venue (Hotel Melià-Sitges); and maintaining, as much as possible, the scientific program.

We will inform you of the changes related to this postponement.

We would like to apologize for any inconvenience it may cause, but we hope you will understand our decision considering the exceptionality of the pandemic.

The EPS Organizing Committee promises to deliver an unforgettable event (36th EPS and 12th IPS) in Sitges in 2022 which we anticipate to be well attended and we hope you are able to be a part of.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your continued support and understanding during these difficult times.


We look forward to seeing you in Sitges- Barcelona!
