In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, we announce that the 19th International Congress of Endocrinology (ICE 2020), 4th Latin American Congress of Endocrinology (CONLAEN) and 13th Congress of the Argentine Federation of Endocrinology Societies (FASEN) will not be performed in the form of an in-person meeting in as it was originally scheduled to take place in “La Rural” Convention and Exhibition Center, Buenos Aires, Argentina on October 4-7, 2020.
As always, the health and safety of our attendees, partners, vendors and staff is our priority. For weeks, we have closely monitored updates from the World Health Organization (WHO) on the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak and have worked with our Local Organizing Committee (LOC) and local health authorities in Argentina, while thoroughly exploring all possible options. Our difficult decision comes as the number of COVID-19 cases have continued to escalate worldwide and increasing global travel restrictions have been put in place.
To adapt to the current situation, we are excited to announce that the 19th International Congress of Endocrinology (ICE 2020), 4th Latin American Congress of Endocrinology (CONLAEN) and 13th Congress of the Argentine Federation of Endocrinology Societies (FASEN) will be transformed into a virtual meeting in February 2021.
