6th International Consensus Conference on Concussion in Sport postponed to 2022

Formal Announcement

Dear Lead Authors, Dear Experts, Dear Participants, Dear Partners,

We would like to inform you that, due to the global uncertainties and travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Scientific Committee and the Organising Committee have made a difficult decision to postpone the 6th International Consensus Conference on Concussion in Sport, which was scheduled for 28-30 October 2021.

The conference is not cancelled, but postponed until 2022. The Organising and the Scientific Committees are looking for viable alternative dates for the conference in autumn 2022. We will announce the new dates and venue by the end of this summer at the latest.

When deciding to postpone the conference, we considered various alternative formats, but were unable to identify a hybrid or fully online option that enabled the participation of all faculty and participants at a suitable time due to the time zone issues. We opted to postpone the meeting to enable the best chance of an in-person conference in order to engage all relevant parties in the discussions, maintain the scientific rigour of our process and bring together our community.

If you have submitted an abstract for the meeting, thank you! We will send more information about the processing of the submitted abstracts shortly.

We are sincerely sorry that this decision has had to be made due to the public health crisis. Rest assured that we are working to minimise any inconveniences caused due to this postponement.

If you have any questions regarding this update, you can contact us at info@concussionconference.org

Thank you for your understanding, involvement and participation in the success of our 6th International Consensus Conference on Concussion in Sport. We look forward to meeting you next year.

Stay safe and healthy in the meantime.
