CONFERENCE POSTPONED  New dates will be announced soon! 


NOTE: A new period for Abstracts Submission will be opened. Therefore, deadlines of abstract submission and Early bird registration are cancelled. The new deadlines will be announced once a new dates for the Symposium will be identified


Dear Participants,

Due to the latest developments regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, the Organizing Committee has decided to postpone the ISLS & ISBC 2020 Conference. The new dates for the celebration of the ISLS & ISBC 2020 will be announced in the next future. The conference will take place at the same venue, Gijon Conference Centre (Gijon, Spain).

As organizers our primary goal is to organize a safe meeting, on a high scientific level. Taking into account the outbreak of coronavirus in Spain, Europe and all around the world, the recommendations of the WHO and the guidelines of the different National Governments we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the conference.

Please visit regularly the Conference website for updated information about new extended registration deadlines, new program scheduling and other additional information.

In the meantime, we kindly ask for your patience and support, and wish you, your colleagues and families good health and resilience.
