IMPORTANT INFORMATION regarding the PER-IADR Oral Health Research congress in Marseille, France | September 10-12, 2020

Dear members, dear friends,


The PER-IADR board continues to monitor the globally evolving situation related to COVID-19. While most of the European countries are slowly lifting their restrictions,

travelling as well as large gatherings are still not permitted. Taking into consideration experts’ evaluation and predictions, the future looks rather grim and especially VERY UNPREDICTABLE.


As an oral health organisation, we are fully committed to the health and safety of all congress participants. It is therefore our utmost wish not to defer important difficult decisions concerning the upcoming PER-IADR Oral Health Research congress any longer.


The PER-IADR Board met on April 27, 2020 by video conference and unanimously agreed TO POSTPONE the 2020 PER-IADR Oral Health Research congress scheduled for September 10-12, 2020 TO SEPTEMBER 2022, again to be held in Marseille, France (exact dates will be communicated ASAP).


By informing you well in advance, we hope to safeguard participants and affiliated universities against the unnecessary effort or expense in submitting abstracts or making travel arrangements for the congress.


Be sure that individuals/groups who have already registered and paid registration fees, will be contacted personally and fully reimbursed. Any submitted abstracts will be deleted and NOT registered as published, by which the data can still be submitted for presentation/publication elsewhere at any later time.


Though we are apart for a while, we are TOGETHER in our mission: RESEARCH!


Above all, please do what you can to remain healthy.


Yours sincerely,




Harold Sgan-Cohen                                                              Imad About

(PER-IADR President)                                                          (2020 PER-IADR Congress President)
