Dear all,

After close monitoring of the global risk assessment by the World Health Organization of the COVID-19 pandemic, on behalf of the ICNMD 2020 Local Organizing, Program and Scientific Program Committees, we wish to share with you today that the International Congress on Neuromuscular Diseases, scheduled on July 10-14, 2020 in Valencia, Spain will be postponed.

We recognize the need to care for the health and welfare of our participants and of the host community. We are cognizant of the travel restrictions that are being extended on a daily basis and impacting our colleagues' ability to attend ICNMD2020. We also are aware that health institutions, organizations and educational facilities are restricting employee and student travel and participation in upcoming conferences.

As we continue to monitor the situation, we are exploring options for rescheduling of the Congress and we will provide updates in the very short term. In addition, we are contemplating the possibility of a virtual component to keep our community engaged and present some research highlights as we wait for our face-to-face meeting.

We invite all our delegates and Industry partners to read our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and monitor your emails, as well as our website, for specific information on our progress.

Stay safe and healthy in the meantime.

Sincerely,
Prof. Juan J. Vilchez
ICNMD2020 Congress President
