Corona virus and new EPC2020 update.

Registration refunds

Much to our regret the Covid-19 pandemic forced us to cancel the European Population Conference 2020 in Padova, Italy. EAPS and the Italian organizers feel very saddened by this, but the health and safety of our members and conference participants were our highest priority. Together with our Italian colleagues, the Council is currently exploring options to organize some virtual “EPC 2020” sessions; we will keep you informed about this. The Council of EAPS is happy to confirm the following cancellation policy: EAPS will fully refund all registration fees. Registration fees may also be converted in a donation to EAPS to help cover the costs of cancelling the EPC. Fees for conference exhibitors will also be refunded. EAPS membership fees are not refundable.

We understand that you are eager to learn when your registration fee for the cancelled EPC 2020 will be refunded. Please be aware that this is one of our priorities, but in the current circumstances this may still take some more time.
We will inform you as soon as possible and hope for your patience and understanding.
