At ICONHIC we are committed to organizing our events with physical presence to allow face-to-face experience which, among other advantages, comes with a greater potential for stronger relationship building, guarantees a higher level of commitment of the participants and allows for a more prosperous and interactive dialogue and sharing of ideas and new advancements. Although we have remained optimistic until this very last moment, the current restrictions related to the covid-19 pandemic do not allow the event to take place as a physical meeting this summer. Even if travel restrictions are gradually lifted later this year, it will apparently be too late for most of our participants to plan their attendance.
Therefore, consistently with our commitment, the organizers together with the Steering and Scientific Committees of the conference have decided to postpone the event until July 5-7, 2022 when it will take place as a physical event in Athens. A limited series of preparatory special sessions will take place during the planned ICONHIC2021 dates between June 22-24 this summer. Details will be announced shortly.
Authors of accepted abstracts will be able to withdraw or roll over their submissions for the 2022 event. For more details please visit the “Authors” Section of our website or visit the conference updates section of our home page.
“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much” – Helen Keller, 1888
Following its evolution philosophy, the ICONHIC 2021 edition ventures the step forward: to build upon facilitative dialogue and strong synergies and propose an informed and realistic course of action against catastrophic natural events.
