Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Subject: ESSO ISPSM 2020 – Postponed till further notice
We write to inform you that the 4th International Live Operative Workshop (ESSO Certified) -Advanced Course on Peritoneal Surface Malignancies, HIPEC & PIPAC, has had to be been postponed to a later date as of now. This letter summarises the origin of that decision.
The health of our friends and colleagues remains our principle priority. During the past month, we have been monitoring the evolution of this outbreak on a daily basis. We have carefully followed the recommendations of the Indian Government and various international organisations, including the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We also met, in person, last week, colleagues from the District Medical & Health Officer Medical Council to discuss the most appropriate options to avoid any potentially deleterious exposure to the participants.
Today morning, Dr. T. Subramanyeshwar Rao the Chairman Organising Committee ISPSM 2020 & Dr. S.V S. Deo, President ISPSM and Dr. Somashekhar .S.P, Hon Secretary along with the International council has taken a joint decision to postpone this conference in view of the Indian Ministry of Health & Family Welfare issuing a recommendation to cancel any gatherings (congress, meeting, seminar) Notification attached.
But in light of the global scenario, the possible health risk to our faculty and delegates and based on the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare recommendations, we feel this is the only way ahead.
In view of the huge amount of effort, goodwill and resources devoted to the 2020 ESSO ISPSM by the Scientific Community as well as by the corporate entities supporting the event, we feel bound to revert back with the new dates decided by the Organising Committee in consultation with the national and international Faculty.
Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to meeting you in Hyderabad in the coming months.
For the Organising Committee
|Dr. T. Subramanyeshwar Rao
