13th IWBS rescheduled to March 2021

The Organizing and Scientific Committees have decided to postpone until 23-26 March 2021 the 13th IWBS that was originally planned for September 2020.

The difficult decision was taken in light of the development of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainties surrounding its expansion and travel restrictions in place over the coming months. Our main concern is to guarantee the health and safety of all participants and staff involved. 

The location, program, and associated events will be maintained, as far as possible. 

The Call for Abstracts will remain open until 15 October 2020. If you submitted a presentation, it will be evaluated by the Scientific Committee.  You have the possibility to resubmit your abstract before the new deadline.

If you have already registered, your registration will be kept. It can also be refunded if you contact us.

Any further news will be posted on the website. If you have any specific questions, please contact us at

We hope you are all staying safe and healthy and we look forward to meeting you in March 2021!

The Organizing Committee
