𝗜𝗖𝗢𝗦 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟭 𝗞𝗥𝗔𝗞𝗢́𝗪 𝗜𝗡 𝗩𝗜𝗥𝗧𝗨𝗔𝗟 𝗠𝗢𝗗𝗘
Dear Colleagues, Participants of the 27th ICOS Congress,
Last year, due to the Covid-19 epidemic, we had to postpone our conference for one year. We hoped that during this time the situation would have subsided and we all would be able to meet in person in Kraków. Unfortunately, in many countries the situation is still unstable and we can not be sure that traveling and meetings will be possible in August 2021. Therefore, after many discussions, the organizers and the ICOS Board have made a difficult but necessary decision on the organization of the 𝟮𝟳𝘁𝗵 𝗜𝗖𝗢𝗦 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝗴𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝗯𝗲𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝗶𝗻 𝘃𝗶𝗿𝘁𝘂𝗮𝗹 𝗺𝗼𝗱𝗲. The Congress will take place between the 𝟮𝟮-𝟮𝟳 𝗔𝘂𝗴𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟭 and will be held on the 𝗭𝗼𝗼𝗺 platform. Changing the concept of the Congress to remote mode resulted in lower registration costs. The updated registration fees and new framework programme will be published this week, after which the registration system will also be launched.
We are convinced that despite the change in the formula of the congress, it will allow us to achieve the main objective of presenting research and exchange experiences of onomasticians from around the world.
We will keep you up to date on any events related to the ICOS Congress in Krakow.
