IAFS 2020 - Postponement

Thursday 23, Apr 2020

Dear Australian Institute of Professional Intelligence Officers Inc.,

Thank you for agreeing to cross promote with the 22nd Triennial Meeting of International Association of Forensic Sciences (IAFS 2020) in conjunction with the 25th Symposium of the Australian & New Zealand Forensic Science Society originally scheduled for 21-25 September 2020 at the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney), Australia.

Following the extraordinary circumstances related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and after thorough evaluation of the emergency situation globally, it is with great regret that we must postpone IAFS 2020. This is not a decision taken lightly. Although Australia has taken enhanced measures for the control of the spread of COVID-19, the Organising Committee are committed to ensuring that the health and safety of all our speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, delegates and stakeholders is prioritised above all else. 

The postponed Meeting will be held at the same venue, the International Convention Centre Sydney, from Monday 17 May to Friday 21 May 2021 (with pre-Meeting workshops to be held from Saturday 15 May).  

We are looking forward to delivering an engaging scientific program and writing to seek your agreement to continue to promote the Meeting via your website. If you would like to update your logo or content on our website, please advise our team.

We kindly request that you re-confirm your participation by responding to this email by Friday 22 May 2020.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Arinex at for further assistance.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and ongoing support.
