    Dear colleagues,

    In light of the current developments regarding COVID-19 we would like to give a brief update regarding our 8th annual scientific conference of the European Association of Psychosomatic Medicine (EAPM 2020).

    With the constantly changing situation and the spread of the virus in Europe it is currently very difficult to assess if it is possible and safe to run the conference as scheduled.
    Currently there is no definite indication to cancel or postpone the conference but we will carefully follow the developments of the next weeks.

    As these uncertain times makes it difficult to plan, we extended the Early Bird Registration as well as the cancellation policy for registration until April 30th, 2020. In the meantime we recommend to postpone further travel and accommodation bookings unless reimbursement is guaranteed.

    If you haven´t submitted your abstract, we will open the late breaking poster submission soon.
    We will keep you posted about the status of our conference and please do not hesitate to contact us with any further questions.

    Thank you for your understanding and stay healthy!

    Christoph Pieh
    On behalf of the conference committee
