ECOC Exhibition 2020
07-09 December

Due to the current circumstances regarding Covid-19 the decision has been taken by the ECOC Management Committee and ourselves to postpone the event from September to December

ECOC 2020

The COVID-19 outbreak has presented everyone with unprecedented challenges and uncertainties. We have been closely monitoring the travel advice and public health guidelines issued through the official channels of the World Health Organization (WHO), the Government of Belgium, and Belgian public health agencies.

In light of uncertainties regarding international travel, in response to requests from local authorities, and in consultation with ECOC Management Committee we have decided to postpone ECOC 2020 to 6– 10 December 2020 (Exhibition dates 7-9) also in Brussels, Belgium.

By postponing ECOC 2020 we will significantly increase the possibility of a successful edition (in person !) of our exhibition and IMEC, our partner in organizing the conference. In light of this the conference has decided to postpone the paper submission deadline to 28 August, thus offering the possibility to complete the experiments which in many laboratories have come to a halt due to the corona crisis.

ECOC 2020, as a premier event worldwide in our field, will continue to provide you with a unique and high-level platform to present and exhibit your research results and products.

We will deliver further announcements with details concerning the event and registration via the website and via the social media.

Please note due to the new event dates the website is currently being updated and work will be completed by Thursday at 12pm. If you have any questions please contact a member of the team.
