World One Health Congress
About this event
- 30 Oct - 3 Nov 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly escalating globally and putting an enormous strain on medical and other front-line health and community services everywhere. It seems very wrong and irresponsible for us to continue to plan on holding the Congress in Edinburgh in June, and potentially place you and all our delegates at risk of infection.
The #WOHC2020 Organising Committee has therefore decided to re-schedule the Congress, and now plans to hold it from 30 October to 3 November 2020instead, ending most appropriately on the annual One Health Day.
The Congress will take place in the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC), the same venue as initially planned. All registrations will be transferred to the new dates and all abstracts that have been accepted for presentation, planned side events and special sessions will remain in the programme. The early bird as well as the submission deadline for late breaker and COVID-19 abstracts have been extended to September 18.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide further updates on our website. We hope you will all remain safe and well in the intervening period, and we look forward to welcoming you to an exciting and informative 6th World One Health Congress in October.
