Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We are all living in a tough time through the COVID 19 pandemic.
It is still unclear after 5 months, how things will settle down and when can we resume our normal International Congresses and scientific activities.
Several Countries in different continents and International hospitals have issued a ban on international travel until the December 31, 2020. Others require 14 days home quarantine for all passengers coming from abroad.
In other words we can not hold an International congress with live interaction among colleagues and surgeons in Vienna on December 2-4, 2020.
The Executive board had to take the difficult decision to postpone the 4th Hypospadias International Congress planned in Vienna one year to 2021.
The exact date and details will be sent to you in due course. Thank you for your understanding.
In the meantime, the executive board is considering to organise some virtual meetings and symposia in 2020.
We will write to you as soon as the plans and dates are fixed.
In the meantime, we wish you all good health, and stay safe please,
The HIS executive committee
