35th Biennial Congress of the International Paper Historians (IPH) Postponed to 2021

It is with sincere regret that the IPH 2020 Planning Committee announces the postponement of the 35th IPH Congress in Washington DC originally planned for September 15-18, 2020. Although we all hope that the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic will be over by this fall, we cannot be certain that the outbreak will be resolved by that time. Travel within America and overseas travel from Europe to the US are both severely restricted for the foreseeable future. Potential conference speakers and attendees will wish to see how the situation resolves in their home state or country before they can commit to coming to Washington DC. It is a time when our mutual interest in paper history must yield to more pressing concerns.

Together with the IPH Council, the Planning Committee will announce a new date in 2021 for the Congress on its website. We have planned an enticing program with thirty-two outstanding speakers from around the world, and we wish to give them the opportunity to present their research to the largest possible audience. The new date for registration will be announced after the Congress dates have been determined. We thank you for your understanding and flexibility.
