To all ISB members,

We sincerely hope you, your families and friends are all healthy and well in these strange Covid-19 times.

This message is to inform you that registration for the XVIII ISB Congress in Stockholm, 2021 is now open on the congress website: Due to the special circumstances the congress organisers are offering a complete refund of the registration fees (minus a small administration charge) up until the 10th March 2021 to remove any risk for you to register for an IRL meeting in Stockholm. If you register for the full congress, but when the time comes are prevented from travelling and would like to change to a purely digital registration the difference in costs will of course also be reimbursed. More information on digital registration will be published soon.

We are well aware that an ISB Congress as we know it is most unlikely next year. At present, the organisers are however, still keeping all paths to either a full meeting, a hybrid version or a fully digital meeting open. One thing is for certain and that is that the congress will be digital, regardless of which of the paths will happen. We are making a final decision on the congress format around the 15th February 2021.

This is also a reminder that abstract submission on the same homepage is open. We are looking forward to receiving all your and your colleagues’ excellent scientific work! As mentioned above there is no risk accompanying an abstract submission as we are well aware that some of you may be prevented from being able to attend physically. We will attempt to provide the best possible platform for all to present their exciting results regardless of which format the congress will have. When submitting your abstracts don’t forget to check which of the attractive ISB Awards you are eligible for! Abstract deadline is the 31st January 2021.

Top priority for ISB Stockholm 2021 is the health and protection of our members and guests. We are closely monitoring the situation and will rigidly follow all official precautions and guidelines for preventing Covid-19 infection and minimising the risk of virus transmission. The pandemic is taking new forms all the time, national situations are changing and there may be successful vaccines around the corner. We are closely monitoring all these developments and ensure you that your safety is our primary goal.

Take care,
