We are sensitive to the impact that the current COVID-19 pandemic is having. We are still planning to go ahead with #IP2020 in September, but it is likely that deadline for abstracts will be extended.

We are monitoring the situation closely & any updates will be posted here.

We would be delighted if you would join us after day 1 of conference, alongside the Mayor of Bournemouth for our #IP2020 welcome reception.

We hope to see you there!

The evening will begin with a wine reception, followed by a 3 course meal.
