Over the past week, COVID-19 has become a global issue of concern and the health and safety of delegates, presenters and staff remains of paramount importance in the deliberations of the conference organising committee.
The Prime Minister of Australia, The Honorable Scott Morrison MP, has recently directed that gatherings of more than 500 people should be suspended. The International Conference on Grief and Bereavement in Contemporary Society (ICGBCS) does not fall within these parameters and as such, at this stage, we will continue to take guidance from the Federal Government and re-assess this decision as the situation progresses.
In light of the above, all stakeholders of the 2020 ICGBCS will be advised of the final decision on the conference by Thursday April 9th, 2020.
We thank you for your patience and support while we work through these issues.
