Update on novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear ISPG Members,

In response to the rapidly changing circumstances associated with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the ISPG Board and 2020 WCPG Program Chairs have decided to take the 2020 World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics virtual.

In coming to this decision, ISPG leadership carefully weighed the risks to attendees and their families, colleagues, and patients. Considering all the information available at this time, ISPG leadership believes that canceling the in-person conference and taking WCPG virtual is the responsible action to take. The health and safety of members, attendees, and the community is our top priority.

Please know this has been an incredibly difficult decision to make. We need your help to make this virtual conference a success. Please submit your abstracts, as the deadlines have been extended!

Kind regards,
ISPG Board of Directors &
2020 WCPG Program Chairs
