UPDATE 27 March 2020 - Asian Borderlands Conference Seoul - Postponed due to COVID-19 Outbreak
After careful consideration of the increasing spread of the coronavirus (official name SARS-CoV-2) and evaluation of the survey results, the Asian Borderlands Conference Committee, has taken the difficult decision to postpone the conference Borderland Futures: Technologies, Zones, Co-existences, which was originally scheduled from 25-27 June 2020 in Seoul, South Korea.
The safety and health of our participants is our foremost priority. We also think that we should do what we can to reduce the numbers of people travelling between countries at the present time to minimise the risk of the virus spreading further. By taking this decision now, we hope to minimise any stress or inconvenience for our participants.
The planning of the conference was well underway, with nearly 200 participants and more than 40 confirmed sessions scheduled to take place over the course of three days. We look forward to holding the conference in 2021, which will give participants the opportunity to present and discuss their work, make valued connections, and build collaborations with colleagues around the world.
If you have booked already a flight ticket/accommodation, please contact your airline company/accommodation provider as soon as possible to inquire about change/cancellation policies. Many airlines decided to be very flexible regarding flight changes due to the current situation. If you need an official letter from the organisers about the postponement for refund purposes, please contact us.
Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ms Martina van den Haak at email@example.com.
We hope for your understanding for the postponement of the conference, and we would like to wish you all good health in these challenging times.
We hope to see you at the conference in Seoul in June 2021.
