The IPMEN Conference Committee is monitoring the covid-19 situation and holding biweekly meetings on its potential impact on the IPMEN 2020 conference “One Ocean, Many Connections” scheduled to be held July 9 to 12 in Honolulu, Hawai‘i.
As of March 7th, Hawai‘i has recorded two cases of covid-19 and there are no travel restrictions, although certain airlines have suspended or reduced travel between Hawai‘i and some countries.
The call for papers will now remain open until May 31 to accommodate those with travel uncertainties due to the current situation.
We are hopeful that the covid-19 outbreak will taper off with the close of the flu season and that 2020 will bring us together for another successful IPMEN gathering. Please monitor this website for updates.
