ICOP 2021

New date for ICOP: April 16 – April 18, 2021

In the last few days we have received many messages from speakers and visitors from abroad about no longer being able to attend the ICOP2020 event due to travel restrictions because of the Corona virus. Also, we cannot be sure about future developments within our own country. That is why we have made the difficult decision to postpone the ICOP2020 event until next year.

In agreement with our international colleagues we have decided the new date for this event will be April 16 – April 18, 2021. The location will be unchanged.

If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to icop2021@oogziekenhuis.nl.
