GIN 2020/22 - Toronto

GIN 2020 - Cancelled - New dates for 2022

Dear Members & Colleagues

We have continued to closely monitor the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and had committed to communicating the decision about whether to continue with our conference plans by 12th May 2020.  We appreciate that an earlier decision would be helpful, thus have been working towards this.

Regretfully, after very careful consideration we, along with our local host, McMaster University have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Toronto conference.  Although this has been a difficult time, resulting in a tough decision, we were unanimous in agreeing that this was the only safe decision to make in these unprecedented and unpredictable circumstances. The wellbeing and safety of all our participants, members and guideline colleagues around the world is our primary concern.

However, we have continued to work with McMaster and the conference venue, in order to agree dates for the 2022 conference and we are delighted to announce that the GIN conference will take place in Toronto, from 21-24 September 2022.

We are currently considering options to host webinars of how COVID-19 impacts on activities related to guidelines during the 2020 dates.  This is not intended to be a conference replacement, however, I would ask you to hold these dates in your diary in the meantime and encourage you to submit your suggestions regarding suitable topics, rapid reviews and guidelines to be included.

The planning for the Global Evidence Summit 2 (GES 2) is well under way, and will take place in Prague, Czech Republic from 4-8 October 2021.  The Summit is being jointly organised by GIN, in collaboration with Cochrane, the Campbell Collaboration and the Joanna Briggs Institute.  Further information can be found here.

We hope that you will be able to participate in the sessions that we organise later in the year and will look forward to seeing you at a GIN Conference in the future. In the meantime, please stay safe and well.

Best Wishes



Elaine Harrow

Chief Executive Officer
