LASIG 2020 Ankara, Turkey – Important Announcement

Dear Colleagues,

We regret to inform you that today, Thursday, March 12th, IATEFL LASIG event Metamorphosis: A Journey of Self-Directed Learning and Advising has been postponed to a later date to be announced due to the distress concerning the cases related to COVID-19. The Organisation Committee had to make a unanimous decision considering the worrisome developments taking place lately, the informative yet alarming announcements made by the World Health Organisation and The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, limitations enforced on cross-border travels, and the significant number of participants explaining their concerns about not being able to make it to Ankara on the day of the event.

The IATEFL LASIG coordinators and the Organisation Committee are now trying to figure out possible future dates to reschedule the event and make sure that all the effort to bring all these enthusiastic participants from the field together will not go in vain. As your registration information can be carried over until the next date to be announced, you will not have to go through any other formal procedure to participate in the event.  You will be reached out as soon as a new date for the conference is set, and this is totally dependent on the announcements by the experts and the scientists as to the development of a possible vaccine, or a different form of cure for the disease.

Our main concern now is your well-being only, and we hope that you will be able to easily cancel your arrangements such as accommodation and flight with full refund. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused by the immediate decision, and we are sure that you understand the delicacy of the situation and the motives driving us to take action.

The Organisation Committee
