On coronavirus disease COVID-19 outbreak

Given the World Health Organization announcement of COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic and its spread in Ukraine, Kyiv Department of the Ukrainian Geographical Society calls 

do not spread panic, but strictly follow the requirements and recommendations

of the World Health Organization, Ministry of Health of Ukraine and Kyiv city authorities!

Because of the spread of coronary virus worldwide and decision of Ukrainian authorities to cancel all mass events, including scientific events, all geographic conferences in Ukraine in Spring and Summer were canceled or postponed.

Association of American Geographers council has decided unanimously to cancel its annual meeting in Denver in April. The recent Association member’s survey showed that more than 60% were unable, unwilling or discouraged from attending.

The EUROGEO Board has decided unanimously to cancel the Conference in Madrid in April 2020.

Following the spread of the coronavirus pandemic and its current trajectory, it has become clear that it will not be possible to hold the 34th International Geographical Congress in İstanbul in August this year as originally planned. On the 2nd of April, the Local Organising Committee and the IGU Executive Committee have taken the decision that the International Geographical Congress 2020  in İstanbul is postponed for one year. They are aware that this decision has many consequences, but the very real health risks and the capacity to travel for the Congress participants leave them with no other alternative. The Istanbul congress will now take place from August 16th to 20th 2021All registration fees received, abstracts accepted, travel grants awarded, and the conference programme already developed for this year will be carried over to 2021. Any delegate who has already paid the registration fee may use that fee to participate in the Congress in August 2021 and, if desired, submit a new paper for the August 2021 Congress.
