EHMSG 2020 GOES VIRTUAL
President of the EHMSG
In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, we regretfully announce that the 33rd Workshop of the European
Helicobacter and Microbiota Study Group, originally scheduled to take place from September 10 – 12, 2020 in
Glasgow, United Kingdom, needs to be postponed in its physical form to another year.
We have monitored the situation and updates from the World Health Organisation (WHO) closely during the past few weeks and have tried to explore all possible options. To guarantee the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and staff, the EHMSG Board has come to the conclusion that the conference cannot take place in its scheduled format this year. While there is still a small chance that the situation might improve to an extent that a physical conference is possible until mid-September, the decision has already been made now in order to provide clarity to all parties involved.
In order to guarantee that the latest research and education can still be shared continually on an international level, EHMSG will transition to a virtual conference in a compact version taking place on one day only on Saturday, September 12, 2020 providing both live and on demand talks as well as a platform for e-posters.
The Scientific Programme Committee has gathered to adapt the schedule of the conference and our focus will be on the identification of proper tools that allow similar elements of connectivity and involvement for all participants.
We will provide you with further information as well as the updated programme as soon as available.
In case of any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.
Please take care of yourself and stay safe!
With best regards,
President of the European Helicobacter and Microbiota Study Group
