Dear IMISCOE community

18 March 2020

We hope this message finds you well amidst of this COVID19 crisis. We wish all of you good health in these difficult times, and we want you to know that are thoughts are with the members and member institutes that have been hit particularly hard by this crisis.

We would like to follow up on the implications of the COVID19 developments for our annual conference, which was scheduled to take place 30 June - 2 July this year at the University of Luxembourg. Today we have received word from the University of Luxembourg that, due to the COVID19 crisis, there was no other option than to cancel the conference for these dates and to try to postpone to a later date. With this decision UL is following the recommendations of the Government of Luxembourg and the unforeseeable situation in the upcoming months.

We fully respect this decision and thank Prof. Birte Nienaber and Nicole Holzapfel-Mantin for the hard work they have done already, and for their prudent approach to this complex situation. We are currently studying various scenarios for alternative dates for the conference.

We understand that this news is disappointing for everyone who was looking forward to the IMISCOE conference. We will keep you well informed in the upcoming weeks, and we hope you can join and attend the conference at another scheduled time.

For those who have already paid their registration fee, we intend to fully reimburse the fee if you are not able to attend the conference at an alternative date.
