In view of Typhoon Ulysses which is expected to land tonight in the Philippines and by virtue of the declaration of President Duterte regarding the suspension of work and classes for the next two days, the organizers of PRCTH is postponing the conduct of the conference from November 12-13, 2020 to November 19-20, 2020. This is in anticipation of internet connectivity concerns that may arise because of the typhoon aftermath.

STAY SAFE EVERYONE!
