Dear EPSSE.7 participants, dear EPSSE members,
we have sad news for you. The spreading of the Corona virus and the plausible reactions of many governments to decrease the velocity of the spreading of the virus has led us to the decision to postpone the EPSSE.7 conference for one year.
First, we thought of a plan B—moving the conference to September 2020—but it is highly probable that even in September we will face many travelling restrictions and also restrictions for larger meetings. Therefore, we decided to make a cut now and meet in early June 2021 (probably June 10-12, 2021). This would allow some of you who have already booked their flights to make changes in the flight dates (within one year). We will also honor all papers already accepted, but may offer an additional (new) call in October.
Those of you who have already paid the early bird fee, please let us know whether we can keep it for next year or whether we should reimburse the registration fee, and if so, to what bank account we should transfer the money.
The executive committee would like to express great gratitude to the local organizers Sonja Rinofner-Kreidl and Markus Seethaler, who did already everything to organize a nice conference in Graz 2020, and who are willing to also organize the postponed conference in Graz in 2021.
We would have loved to listen to your presentations in 2020 and we very much look forward to do so in 2021
Achim Stephan, Alessandra Fussi & Damian Cox
