Important notice regarding COVID-19 and ISHGD 2020

Dear authors, presenters, sponsors, registrants and other supporters of the 6th ISHGD featuring the 6th USS,

The recent developments in the spread of the COVID-19 virus and the measurements taken by the Dutch Government have prevented us from organizing a successful symposium for June/July of this year. The health and safety of our visitors is our number one priority.

Therefore, we have decided to shift the 6th ISHGD featuring the 6th USS to spring/summer 2021.
We hope to identify the exact dates of the meeting in the next week or two and will send them to you as soon as possible.
We understand that postponing the symposium has a major impact on everyone who is involved in the symposium, but this was the only decision we could make. We thank you again for your loyalty to this great symposium and look forward to seeing you in 2021.
Registration fees and dinner tickets will automatically be applied to the new 2021 symposium dates.  If a registrant finds that the new dates no longer work for his/her schedule, please contact Congress by design for alternatives.
Accepted and submitted papers will be included in the shifted symposium dates (spring/summer 2021).  If an author, needs to withdraw his/her paper due to inability to attend at the shifted dates, please contact Congress by design. All authors will also be given the option to modify their papers before the Symposium next year.
More information is available in our Q&A at the symposium website (questions about for example hotel cancellation, paper adjustments, registration).
If you have any questions regarding the rescheduling of the symposium, do not hesitate to contact us at
On behalf of the organizing committee,
