EAPS and BPSA regret to announce that the 2020 Conference at the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport in Paris University has been canceled.
The health and safety of conference participants and Paris University staff members are our highest priorities and were the determining factors in this difficult decision.
As the conference dates approach, we have been closely monitoring developments related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The number of confirmed cases has continued to rise. The outbreak has continued to spread. Several states have declared a state of emergency or a public health emergency.
Meanwhile, colleges, universities, and state systems across the world have taken measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19, including the imposition of restrictions on travel. These prudent restrictions also influenced the decision to cancel the conference.
Planning is currently underway to reschedule the conference in October. When we make a decision on this, those who registered for the Conference will receive information via email about participation or refund options.
We will continue to keep you informed about these plans.
Thank you for your confidence.
Vice-President of Francophonie’s Society of Sport’s Philosophy
