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 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.
