Unfortunately it is with great regret that in light of current circumstances regarding the Covid-19 outbreak we have no option but to cancel the Correctional Research Symposium (CRS2021) which was to be held in Porto, Portugal, on 3-4 March 2021.
For accommodation at the main venue, the Holiday Inn, their cancellation policy states that you can cancel your room 48 hours in advance of the stay without penalty. We advise that you make this cancellation as soon as possible. Note that all accommodation bookings are made individually and the organisers (ICPA/CEP/EuroPris) are not able to make these cancellations on your behalf. Of course should you have made accommodation arrangements elsewhere you should check with the provider directly for making the cancellation.
A lot of work has gone into creating a fantastic programme for this conference and as such our aim will be to reconvene this conference on a more suitable date. It is too early at this stage to identify our next window of opportunity but please be assured that we will notify you as soon as we are able. Please contact our team at CRSconference@icpa.org or email@example.com for applying for a refund of your registration fee.
We are truly grateful for the support of all participants, speakers, our event sponsors and our hosts at the Directorate-General of Reintegration and Prison Services (DGRPS). This is a difficult time for everyone and we seek your understanding that this decision to cancel the event is the most sensible course of action for now.
For any questions regarding this announcement and follow-up actions please contact our team at CRSconference@icpa.org or firstname.lastname@example.org. Updates will be provided through email and the conference website: www.icpa.org/crs2021
