15th ICMGP Conference - New Dates
Whilst there’s uncertainty over how COVID-19 will unfold over the coming months, it is becoming increasingly clear that social distancing and travel disruption will likely remain for the foreseeable future. It is also evident that research will not return to normal for many months in most countries.
Taking these factors into account, we, as the ICMGP Executive Committee, have therefore had to make the difficult decision to postpone the 15th ICMGP Cape Town until the 24th-29th of July 2022.
We are sure you will agree that this is best, given the uncertainties regarding COVID-19. We hope that postponing this unique conference by one year will ensure that we achieve the success and exchange of research that we have all come to know!
Deadlines for the call for papers, travel grants, as well as the conference and workshop registrations will be adjusted in line with the new dates. We look forward to welcoming you to Cape Town for the next edition of ICMGP in 2022 and would like to also take the opportunity to thank you for your understanding. Stay safe and keep well,
