With much regret, the organizing and executive committees of the International Conference on Urban Pests (ICUP) have decided to postpone the 10th ICUP Conference. This had earlier been rescheduled to September 2021 in Barcelona, Spain. The intention is still to hold the next ICUP in Barcelona, but it is not possible yet to propose an alternative date.
This postponement is based on the continued spread and impact of the Covid-19 virus. The health risks to ICUP delegates together with the continuing uncertainty and disruption, effectively prevent the planning and organization of a successful international conference.
