New dates for the AMP Europe 2020 Congress confirmed

Updated 3rd August 2020

Dear AMP Community,

We are pleased to announce June 14th –16th, 2021 as the new dates for the AMP Europe 2020 Congress on “Clinical Genomics: Beyond Somatic Mutation” in Milan, Italy.

Thank you for your understanding about our decision to postpone the May dates for the Congress due to COVID-19. The decision was made for the health and safety of our community and having your support was important. Our thoughts continue to be with everyone affected by this pandemic.

If you have already registered for the Congress, your registration will be automatically transferred to the new dates and we look forward to seeing you in September. We plan to have the same strong programming for the event, and the postponement should even allow us to make additions to capture new developments (such as managing COVID-19)! Details about possible program shifts and additions will be available soon. If you are a speaker, or an oral or poster presenter, you will be contacted soon to reconfirm your availability for the new dates.

If you are not able to join us for these new dates, please contact us immediately. (Please see the information in the FAQs, below)

We will be updating the Congress website and our FAQs regularly. Responses to your questions about registration, hotels or presentations will be posted there.

We look forward to welcoming you in Milan in September and remain committed to continuing to work with all of you who share our vision.
