COVID-19 update

Your health and well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic are our priority. That's why the Conference Organising Committee has decided to postpone the event to 2022 and very possibly organise it as a hybrid event - allowing participants the opportunity to participate and engage at a level they are comfortable with - either face-to-face or virtually.

Be well, and stay safe!
