Dear members of IFTR,
On behalf of the Executive Committee and the Galway team, I thank you for your patience and understanding; your messages of support were very much appreciated by all of us.
I am pleased to announce that the generosity on the part of other future IFTR hosts means that we are able to reschedule the Galway conference in 2021. The Galway team is aiming for 12th to 16th July 2021 (provisional dates until fully confirmed by the team’s institution and external partners). Information about how we shall be proceeding with the administrative logistics of the rescheduled conference will follow in due course.
Regarding immediate cancellation matters, please note the following:
If you made an accommodation booking through the conference agency Go West, you will be receiving a refund by the end of April/ early May. The 35 Euros administrative cancellation charge is being covered by IFTR, so you will be refunded in full.
All conference registration fees are being refunded in full by Cambridge Core (as distinct from the non-refundable membership fee).
Bursary awardees and essay prize winners: we shall be communicating with you shortly.
In many countries, people are about to start their Easter holiday break. Wherever you are and whatever your holiday-lockdown plans are, IFTR & Galway 2021 wish you the warmest and the best,
President of IFTR.
