NEXT MEETING  

The Tenth International Congress of the GRS and IGF Society

Dear GRS members

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread rapidly around the world. This unprecedented public health emergency has forced people into a prolonged social isolation, with profound impact on their physical, mental and economic health. Governments, institutions and companies are restricting travel and all kind of events have been cancelled worldwide.

Considering all these problems, the executive committee of our society have been virtually meeting last week with the Local Organizing Committee and with a great sorrow we have decided to cancel the 10th International Congress of the GRS and IGF Societies, which was scheduled to be held this year in Foz do Iguassu, Brazil, between 13-16 November.

Although this is of great disappointment, it is strongly felt that this decision was taken in the best all round interests of our community, since speakers, sponsors and participants would face many difficulties to organize their travels, attend the congress and enjoy the meeting. We decided to postpone the 10th International Congress of the GRS and IGF Societies, and the current plan is to hold the event in 2021 in Brazil (likely in the same period of the year). Obviously, we will keep our members informed about any further developments.

We hope all our members stay healthy and will continue to support our society.

Kind regards

On behalf of the GRS council
Martin Bidlingmaier
GRS secretary
