Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the KBS Coordinating Committee took the decision to cancel the KBS 2020 Annual Symposium. However, the Symposium is likely to still be held in Warsaw next year and postponed to 31 May – June 4th 2021. Confirmation and finalisation of the 2021 KBS meeting details will be announced by the end of June. Confirmation and finalisation of the 2021 KBS meeting details will be announced by the end of June. KBS is likely to be held in Helsinki in 2022. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to both sets of organisers for their flexibility, understanding and hours of work. The decision was primarily made on the basis that the Warsaw team had invested too much already to disregard. It was also felt that the decision made in these extraordinary circumstances can be seen as one which comes the closest to carrying out the wishes of the membership, given the one year delay necessitated by the emergency of the pandemic. These decisions will be discussed at the KBS Business meeting in 2020.
