We are pleased to announce that the revised procedures and timelines for the 2021 Virtual IPSA World Congress to be held on 10-15 July 2021 are now available on the Congress website.

Due to the worsening of the COVID-19 pandemic, persistent travel restrictions and the uneven and challenging vaccination rollout process worldwide, the IPSA Executive Committee (EC) took the difficult decision to transition to a fully Virtual Congress in 2021. After analyzing all the possible options in consultation with the Local Organizing Committee in Portugal, the Program Co-chairs and the IPSA Secretariat, the EC concluded that holding the Congress onsite in July was not feasible.

We are delighted to inform you that the second call for proposals resulted in a wave of new paper and panel submissions for the 2021 IPSA World Congress in Lisbon. Some 986 new paper proposals and 30 new panel proposals were submitted.

We currently have 5,870 accepted papers and 1,190 panels, making this the largest program ever assembled in IPSA’s history!
