Following the recent postponement of the FIT XXII World Congress due to the worldwide spread of the coronavirus, FIT and ACTI are pleased to announce the new dates for the event, which will take place at the same venue, Meliá International Hotel in Varadero, Cuba.
The FIT Statutory Congress will meet on Tuesday 30 November and Wednesday 1st December 2021, while the Open Congress will be held on 2 – 4 December 2021, with the presentation of papers, lectures, panels, and workshops and the business fair.
We are also very pleased to announce the new dates for submissions, detailed below:
- Submission of paper proposals: up to 30 April 2021
- Acceptance notification to authors: up to 30 June 2021
- Full paper submission: up to 30 September 2021
In view of the economic realities we are all experiencing as a result of COVID-19, we consider it appropriate to offer two payment options for registration for the XXII FIT World Congress.
Here are the new deadlines and the two payment options:
Option 1: Fees and terms as originally announced but with new deadlines
Option 2: Payment by instalments for 3-day registration only
The payment gateway will open again from 1st December 2020 for the early-bird fee.
Registration fees are non-refundable.
FIT and ACTI will continue working closely so that we enjoy a fruitful and successful congress in Varadero, Cuba.
With Best Regards,
Kevin M.J. Quirk
