We have the distinct pleasure to invite you to participate in the 10th World Congress on Mummy Studies, to be held in Bolzano, August 31-September 3, 2020.


Dear WMC community,

It is with regret that we have to inform you that we have to postpone the WMC 2020, planned for 31 August – 3 September 2020, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. We have taken this difficult and complex decision after consultation with the Scientific Committee, the Organization Team and the Eurac Research headquarter. We apologize for the inconvenience to all participants, but the current situation in Italy has made this decision unavoidable.

Nevertheless, we are happy to announce that we have already fixed the new dates for the WMC in 2021, which will now take place from 13 – 17 September, 2021. At least on the positive side, the WMC 2021 will coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Iceman’s discovery.

We sincerely hope that all colleagues who have planned to participate at the WMC this year and who have already started to plan or organize their trips will be able to change or cancel their travel arrangements and join us next year. With regard to the abstract submission and registration we have made the following agreements:

Abstract submission: We will keep the abstract submission process open for 2021. So, you can continue to send in your abstracts. For those who have already submitted an abstract, we will keep the abstract, but feel free to modify or refine your abstract.

Registration: Participants who have already registered will be fully reimbursed. We will close the registration and re-open it at around the end of this year, as we have to re-organize all social events, including the social dinner and the hike to the Iceman finding site.

Conference website: We will keep open the conference website (https://wmc2020.eurac.edu) and update it with the new dates and all relevant information, including new deadlines, events and all important dates.

In the meanwhile, we wish you, your families, friends, loved ones, and colleagues good health throughout these challenging times and we thank you for your patience, understanding and ongoing support. We hope to see you all in Bolzano in 2021.

Yours truly,

The Scientific and Organization Committee
