IMPA Congress postponed to May 2021
As a result of the extraordinary situation resulting from the global Covid-19 outbreak and, in particular, the various public health measures and travel restrictions implemented by many jurisdictions around the world to fight propagation of the virus, IMPA has decided to postpone its biennial Congress in Cancun to 23 to 29 Mayr 2021.

The registrations and hotel reservations that have been made to date will be transferred to the new dates without any additional cost to delegates. This will be done automatically by the local event organizers in Mexico and without any need for you to contact them. In respect of flights to the event, we understand that many airlines around the world have now implemented policies allowing customers to make flight modifications without fees.

It is clearly an exceptional decision and we apologize if it results in any inconvenience but, in light of the recommendations made by the World Health Organization and by many individual countries, it became obvious this was the most responsible course of action.
