Dear interested parties!

The spread of Covid-19 is having a negative impact on the entire conference industry. Due to the uncertain development of the coronavirus and the lack of planning security, we have – as you have already been informed – decided to cancel this year’s congress in Alpbach on October 15th-17th, 2020. We are aware of our social responsibility and do not want to expose anyone to unnecessary risk.

Following the example of other larger conferences and the advancing technology, we have decided to hold an online webinar, which is to replace this year’s congress. An internet-enabled device (laptop / mobile phone) is required to participate. The date for the webinar has now been fixed and we are very happy to announce that it will take place on Wednesday, December 2nd 2020, 3 to 6 pm.

The preliminary speakers for the webinar are (subject to change): 

  • Yael Latzer (Israel)
  • Cristina Segura (Italien)
  • Eva Trujillo (Mexiko)
  • Gerard Butcher (Irland)

Further information on the program and the costs will follow from mid-September. Further technical information will also follow.If you are interested, please send us an e-mail to and you will receive the registration form or further information on request. Furthermore, we would like to kindly point out that for organizational reasons it is mandatory to register for participation in the webinar. If we have received your registration and the associated registration fees, we will send you the link to participate in November. All important information regarding the webinar can also be found on our homepage (, which is updated regularly.

We hope that the possibility of online exchange will be used in the best possible way and that we will meet your expectations.
