Due to Covid-19 and the current global health crisis, we know you must be wondering about our 31st Symposium of the ICTM’s Study Group on Ethnochoreology to be hosted in Klaipeda, Lithuania in July.  The Programme Committee Chairs and Local Organizing Chair have conferred and reached the following decisions:

We will move forward with plans for holding the symposium on the original dates, in the hope that conditions will change enough by then to allow for the symposium to take place.

The deadline for participants to confirm participation has been changed to May 15, 2020.

The final decision on whether or not to postpone or cancel the symposium will be made by June 1 in consultation with the Study Group’s Executive Committee.

The new deadline for early registration is June 15.

Due to the exceptional circumstances created by Covid 19,  we are discussing the possibility of allowing some presentations to be made remotely through video presentations in specific, limited situations.
