The 10th International Conference of the International Lymphoedema Framework


Postponement - New dates 6-8 May 2021

The International Lymphoedema Framework (ILF) in collaboration with the Danish Wound Healing Society (DSFS) and the Danish Lymphoedema Framework (DNL/DLF) will be rescheduled to Thursday 6 May to Saturday 8 May 2021.

The venue remains The Hangar at Comfort Hotel Copenhagen Airport, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Due to the development of the COVID-19 situation across the World the Boards of the organising associations find this the best option available to guarantee the safety of healthcare professionals, patients, and all other conference participants.

Specifically, a ban on gatherings of more than 500 people remains in place in Denmark at least until 1 September 2020, with no guarantee that this will not be further extended. The decision is taken now because a rescheduling closer to the original conference dates (1-3 October 2020) would be very inconvenient and have serious consequences for all conference participants and stakeholders.

We will work hard to plan and offer an attractive and memorable conference for the lymphoedema and wound care communities on the 6-8 May 2021. We will keep the topics already announced and will announce the draft scientific programme as soon as possible.

The new abstract deadline is 16 December 2020; early bird registration deadline is 1 February 2021.

To maintain contact between now and May 2021 the organising associations are considering on-line activities such as webinars etc. Further information about this will follow through the usual communication channels.
