Statement on Coronavirus COVID-19

We continue to confidently plan for ICES 2020 since authorities are taking measures to limit the spread of the virus and to minimize its impact. Unless otherwise advised by official bodies, our event will take place as scheduled.
Having said this, the health and safety of our participants is our number one priority, and we will follow official health and travel advice and the advice of local governmental bodies. We are closely monitoring the situation, and we are in regular contact with our partners in Portugal and around the world.  Any changes to operating status will be communicated immediately. Our thoughts and concerns are with those affected globally.  For the most up-to-date information regarding the virus, please refer to the World Health Organization or U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention websites.
