We have had a number of queries about the current global coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in relation to conference travel planning.
We are monitoring government and UCL advice and guidelines. At present this advice is to carry on as normal with planned events, whilst following WHO guidelines about basic protective measures against the virus https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public
If there are any changes to this situation, we will immediately notify those who have registered and submitted papers.
We have measures in place to reimburse fees should circumstances change and we are advised to cancel. We would remind all registrants, as is standard practice, to make sure that they have travel insurance in place.
Notifications begin on 27th January
Notifications will begin to go out on the 27th January.
We have had an incredible response to the Call for Participation and because of this the review process has taken slightly longer than anticipated. We are in the very final stages of review and notifications will begin to go out on Monday 27th January. We aim to have all notifications out by the end of January.
Notifications will be sent out from Ex Ordo so keep an eye out/remember to add Ex Ordo to your safe lists to avoid the notification going into your spam folder.
