We are all dealing with difficult times due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The situation has worsened significantly in Europe and USA, as well as elsewhere. Some of you may be in the rush to find new solutions to the pandemic and we wish all the success in your efforts. Although our event is still many months away, we cannot fight against reality and try to urge people to register or to buy international tickets at this time. Although the program was almost complete and very exciting, we took the hard decision to postpone IUPAB 2020 for ~1 year. We thank you for your patience and continued persistence, while we announce that IUPAB 2020 will be held in Foz do Iguaçu from 4 to 8th of October 2021.
We understand that this might come as a big disappointment to our chairs, speakers, exhibitors and participants looking forward to some wonderful days in Foz do Iguaçu. However, we do hope to be able to confirm your participation for the next year. We will be sending notifications to each registered participant soon with this information and more details concerning key dates, abstract and reservations.
Through these tough times, we do hope you can continue your teaching and research activities in different ways, to continue with the advances in Biophysics and Biochemistry, and all duties with your family. We also wish all the luck for all those working in fields relevant to addressing the pandemic.
We look forward to welcoming you to Foz do Iguaçu in happier times in 2021!
