The response to our call for abstracts has been very positive.
The IPPW-2019 received 270 abstract submissions from over 250 presenting authors, which represents a large increase compared to previous IPPW events.
However, we are limited to 230 seats at the IPPW-2019 venue, so we have decided that at this point we are inviting registration only from presenting authors of accepted abstracts, and some others who have been specifically invited by the IPPW organising committee (invited speakers, sponsors, session convenors and similar categories). These individuals should receive, on 5th April, instructions on how to register for the conference, and a password to allow registration. Please follow the instructions given in that email to confirm your attendance by the 16th April.
If you have not received an email as above but wish to attend the conference, please e-mail the organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org with 1-2 sentences explaining your interest in the conference. If we are oversubscribed then we will need to prioritise applications; we will do this on the basis of active involvement in IPPW-related work. These applications will be placed in a standby queue and will be reviewed in the week commencing 15th April 2019. We aim to then release extra spaces to waitlisted participants.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Please note the early-bird registration deadline of 4th May 2019.
