Dear colleagues,

Over the past few weeks, many of you have been inquiring about the impact of the coronavirus pandemia on the 16th IHRM conference in Paris, France on June 2-5, 2020.

Although the organizing committee has spent months preparing for a very rich and interesting program to host you in Paris, health and safety come above all else. With great sadness, we had to take the very hard but necessary decision to cancel the conference in June. We acknowledge that this decision might be of a great disappointment to you, however, we count on your understanding and support in this time of crisis.

We will not postpone the conference.

I want to thank each and every one of you for submitting your paper and for helping with the review process.

On behalf of the organizing committee, I wish you all health and safety.



Maral Muratbekova-Touron, Conference Chair
