Corona Virus Update COVID-19

Conference Postponed to 17th – 18th June 2021, Dublin

It is with tremendous disappointment that we have to inform you that due to the continuing escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference due to take place from 25th –  26th June this year will be postponed until Thursday 17th – Friday 18th June 2021 at Trinity College, Dublin.

For delegates who have already registered and paid their fees, we propose that this is simply transferred over to the 2021 conference so that there would be no need to go through the registration process again.  However,  if any delegates wish to cancel we will honour a full refund of their fees so long as they inform us of their cancellation before the 15th May 2020.

If you have made independent accommodation arrangements, then please check the cancellation policy with the accommodation provider directly. 

If you have submitted an abstract for 2020 we will automatcially transfer this to 2021. However we understand that you may not be able to attend the new dates in 2021 or you may wish to withdraw or update your abstract. If you need to do so please let me know as soon as possible by emailing 5Nations@in-conference.org.uk

On behalf of the 5 Nations committee, I would like to thank you for your support and understanding and look forward to see you in 2021. In the meantime, If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact our Conference Organisers (5Nations@in-conference.org.uk)
