THE JOINT CONFERENCE of ICME, INTERCOM & ICOM AZERBAIJAN POSTPONED to APRIL 2021 over COVID-19 CONCERNS

In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic and growing public health concerns, the Boards of ICME, INTERCOM & ICOM Azerbaijan with a heavy heart regret to announce that the Joint Conference of ICME, INTERCOM & ICOM Azerbaijan, originally scheduled to take place from 14th to 16th October 2020 in Baku, Azerbaijan, has been postponed to April 2021.The new dates of the Conference will be announced as soon as it is scheduled.

The conference venue remains the Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum in Baku.

This decision was made after a thorough review and discussion of all factors impacting the Joint Conference, and the ability of delegates, speakers and presenters  to take part. Whilst we believe that postponing is the right decision, we also understand that it is disappointing for all participants and would like to thank you for your patience and support at this challenging time.

We thank all the abstract authors and would like to inform that the notifications of acceptance or rejection of the abstracts will be sent to them in due course.
