World Assembly and Conference postponement – OMEP 2021


Dear colleagues,

After a long and careful evaluation of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic,  and in consideration of our commitment with the health and safety of our members and colleagues, the OMEP Executive Committee (EXCO) has decided to postpone the 72th World Assembly and Conference to be held in Athens from 13 to 17 July 2020, to 12 to 16 July, 2021. The programme and the venues will remain the same.

Accepted submitted abstracts can be kept until next year, but, if someone does not wish to present it at OMEP2021, s/he will have the possibility to withdraw it, sending an email at and stating the abstract number. 

For new submissions we inform you that, in about six months, OMEP Greece and AFEA (responsible for the organisation and logistics) .(will open again the abstract submission portal.

The current preliminary review suggests that OMEP has succeeded in minimizing the costs due to the postponement. If some colleagues are currently registered for OMEP 2020, the registration can remain in place for OMEP 2021. To avoid significant bank charges, no refunds can be provided if someone cannot attend OMEP 2021, but substitution of delegates, in the same registration category, will be accepted at any time. If you need any other information related with registrations, please contact :

The Registration online form will remain open for those who wish to attend OMEP 2021 but have not registered yet. 

If you want to be kept informed, please register to receive our newsletter or visit and OMEP’s social networks.

Hoping to return to a healthy situation in the coming months and with thoughts for you and your loved ones, we look forward to seeing you next year in a strong and amazing OMEP World Assembly and Conference in Athens.

On behalf of the OMEP Executive Committee: 

Mercedes Mayol Lassalle

World President
