Global Neuropsychology Colleagues,

We are writing to update you on the status of the 2020 The International Neuropsychological Society & Association for Neuropsychology Austria (GNPÖ) Congress in Vienna, Austria -. The meeting is scheduled for July 1-3, 2020 and our Congress theme is “The Neuropsychology of Pleasure, Dreaming and Memories.”

Recent events remind us how globally interconnected we are. There are confirmed cases of COVID-19 infections in Europe, and there are no official recommendations to cancel or postpone meetings in Austria. We are monitoring local and international information, and we continue to receive guidance from our partner organizations, the World Health Organization, and Austrian Ministry of Health. This is a dynamic situation, and we will update you as the situation develops. Based on the Austrian Federal Pandemic Plan, Vienna has drawn up its own pandemic plan, which will be adjusted continuously if required.

You can find the most current Austrian information in English about the spread of the virus on the websites of the Ministry of Health as well as the City of Vienna. Below are other helpful resources:

The World Health Organization has information about the coronavirus / COVID-19.

International figures are available from the website of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has an updated situation Summary.


We look forward to having you join us in Vienna for cutting-edge science and fun in Vienna.
