September 15 – 18, 2021

Hosted by New Bedford Whaling Museum

New Bedford, Massachusetts, USA


Dear IPC Community,

After careful consideration and close consultation with our partners at the New Bedford Whaling Museum (NBWM), we have determined that the 2021 IPC Conference will be need to be hosted virtually. The NBWM is not yet able to plan in-person events in the Museum, and due to the pandemic there remains too much uncertainty around travels to plan an in-person event for an international group such as ours.

As you may know, the 2020 conference was a success and we will build on that experience to craft an excellent 2021 conference.

Decisions on acceptance were made by the Conference Scientific Committee and were emailed on April 16, 2021. Registration information will be announced in the coming day. Registration costs are as follows: 

  • IPC member - 120€
  • Non-member - 120€
  • Speaker (delivering a conference presentation) - 120€
  • Student (with copy of valid, current student ID card) - 80€

We are exploring the possibility of organizing an additional, optional in-person visit to the New Bedford Whaling Museum that would occur close to the time of the conference. If you would consider participating in such an event, please let us know so that we may gauge interest.

We appreciate your comprehension and stay to your disposal for any questions. Please contact: secretariat@panoramacouncil.org
