The advent of COVID-19 pandemic and the Government guidance under Health Protection (Coronavirus, Business Closures) Regulations 2020 and other pronouncements, has meant the closure of all non-essential premises/public venues, of which the conference venue at RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London, W1B 1AD, is one.

Given that no public venue events are probable in London until late 2020, we regrettably announce the cancellation of the XIIIth Congress of ISD-DE on 17th – 19th June 2020, for your and our safety.

Registrants and sponsors will be individually contacted in respect to full refunds. Authors of all abstracts submitted will be individually contacted. Please appreciate that these processes will take some weeks to complete. Meanwhile the activities of the website will continue to expand and we look forward to your participation as Members. Membership of the society is encouraged for full benefit. More info on membership available here.
