In light of the COVID-19 situation, the IOA made the prudent decision to reschedule the IOA congress that was to have taken place June 20-23 in Liverpool. The dates for Congress have now been confirmed as:

Thursday 9th – Sunday 12 June 2022

No action is required by anyone currently booked to attend IOA 2020, as you will be automatically transferred to the corresponding dates at IOA 2022. However, as this is two years away, full refunds are available if requested, and available until the end of the year.

Full details on this, cancelling hotel bookings and information on abstract submissions can be found on the IOA Congress site here.
