23rd Paleopathology Association European Meeting

August 25-29, 2022 | VILNIUS, LITHUANIA


March 5, 2021

Dear Colleagues,

After careful and comprehensive evaluation of all pro- and contra, due to current COVID-19 situation, which is accompanied by many uncertainties and restrictions, the Organizing Committee of Paleopathology Association 23rd European Meeting took a difficult decision to postpone the conference once again from 2021 to 2022. Preliminary dates are August 25-29, 2022.

As many of us were looking forward to meet again face-to-face as well as to refresh or establish new professional and personal contacts after a long absence, it is really a pity that we will not be able to do it this year However we cannot rely yet on the effects of vaccination campaigns and immunity conditions in our home countries by the end of summer. Safety of attendees is the fundamental condition. We shall take into account emerging new variations of the virus, which evoke even more uncertainties in terms of conference arrangements for the organizers and in terms of trip planning for participants.

We aim to maintain the original central theme of the conference: “Paleopathology and its impact on medicine and society”, the same scientific committee and the timeframe of the program.  We will continue to accept new abstract submissions. If you wish to update the material of your submitted abstract or present a new research topic, you can do it by sending the updated version to the Conference Secretariat via abstract submission form. Participants who have already paid the fee can maintain the registration as it will be valid for PPA 2022. If you wish to withdraw your registration or abstract – let us know. New deadlines for abstract submission and registration will be available in due time.

We welcome your questions and queries and we thank you very much for your understanding and patience. We look forward to seeing all of you in Vilnius in 2022!

Kind regards,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee
Prof. Rimantas Jankauskas
