No, Cytokines 2021 is a go! Your health is our main concern. Within the UK, we have seen changes in COVID-19 infection rates, with the emergence of the delta variant and ever-changing guidance on travel and regulations. We were prepared for this and will transition to a fully virtual event for your safety.
The health and wellbeing of our delegates is paramount, and the potential disruption caused by mandatory quarantining is likely to impact the conference experience for delegates. As COVID-19 case numbers increase, the possibility of stricter lockdowns and fire breaks remains a reality.
The Cytokines Meeting organisers, committee and local partners have been consulting regularly to discuss the current situation, its evolution and the uncertainty of consequences on everyday life and especially large gatherings of people. The organisers wanted to keep an optimist view of the evolution of the situation, unfortunately too many uncertainties remained, and a decision had to be taken to allow for a serene organization of the virtual meeting.
The dates have not changed. Cytokines 2021 will remain 17-20 October, 2021.
The Attendee Guide will be distributed to all duly registered attendees a few days prior to the event. You will find all virtual rooms detailed with screenshots and callouts, best practices and everything you will need in the Attendee Guide.
