We know that we live in extraordinary times that requires an effective strategy to deal with COVID-19.

This has an impact on IPNC 2020 that was scheduled to take place from 6 to 11 September 2020 at Spier Hotel & Conference venue, Stellenbosch, South Africa.

The health and safety of all participants and partners is our highest priority, and in response, IPNC2020 organisers and Scientific Advisory Panel have taken the decision to postpone the event by one year. The new dates are 19 t0 24 September 2021.

If you have already registered, you don’t need to do anything as we will move your registration to the new dates.

We are all in this together!
