ICARD 2021 Postponed

The ICARD 2021 Committee have been closely monitoring the current global situation. With the increasing global spread of COVID-19, consequent increased number of international travel restrictions along with changing public health measures globally, the ICARD 2021 Organising Committee have been considering the implications for the 2021 Conference in Brisbane. Ensuring the safety of delegates, speakers, industry sponsors, organisational staff and all stakeholders of the Conference is of utmost importance to us. Similarly, maintaining international representation at the 12th ICARD is important.

The ICARD 2021 Organising committee have made the decision to postpone the ICARD Conference. The 12th ICARD will be rescheduled to September 2022. Specific dates and further information will be provided soon. 

The Organising Committee are optimistic that a move to September 2022 will allow for travel restrictions easing, increased economic stability and greater opportunity for high attendance at the ICARD Conference. 

The current planning and preparations completed for ICARD 2021 are completely transferable to the new dates, by which time we anticipate that the thirst for knowledge and personal collaboration throughout the ARD community can and will be met with an extremely successful ICARD Conference in Brisbane, Australia.

On behalf of the ICARD organising committee we thank you for your continued support of ICARD.
