In response to the COVID-19 outbreak this year’s face to face VICEPHEC has been cancelled. We are planning a virtual VICEPHEC (vVICEPHEC) with pre-recorded talks and posters available on an online platform from Monday 17th August with live Q&A sessions taking place via Zoom on Friday 21st August.

Viewing posters and videos will be free, but there will be a small charge to take part in the live sessions. We will also attempt to recreate the atmosphere of VICEPHEC with optional evening social sessions. More details will follow as they are decided.

Due to the virtual nature of the conference we are seeking abstracts for oral presentations (10 minutes) and posters. We are open to abstracts of a different format to these, but presenters must outline exactly how they will deliver the session via an online platform in the abstract. Further details regarding abstract submission including the link to submit can be found on the Abstract Submission page.
