Oxford 2020 Conference Postponed

ISRP 2020 Oxford Conference Postponed

The formal decision to postpone the 2020 International Conference has now been taken by the International board of directors of the ISRP. The conference has been rescheduled for 2021; we will start on Sunday September 26, 2021 and finish on September 30th 2021. We hope that the World has arrived at some sort of normality by that time.

It is a decision that we would have preferred not to have taken, but given the uncertainty in the coming months and the overriding concern to keep people safe, we think this is the right decision.

We thank you for your understanding and hope that you stay safe during this crisis.

Contact  with any questions you may have about the conference.
