CFP: EUPOP 2020

EUPOP 2020

UPDATE!!!

[EUPOP2020 and COVID2019]

Important information concerning the EUPOP 2020:

Due to the current difficult situation concerning the corona virus epidemic, the conference will be rescheduled to 2021.

Travel bans and regulations are now being made worldwide, and we have to consider everyone’s safety and health first, and do our best to limit and contain the epidemic, which might still be an ongoing concern in July.

We are so sorry for all the difficulties this will cause, but truly hope to see you next year under better circumstances. We will discuss further details within the organising committee and inform personally all the participants, and let you know about the new dates, plans and practicalities as soon as possible!

All accepted abstracts will be good next year as well, and we will most likely re-open the call as well. Please wait for this follow-up information, as we cannot answer all individual emails right now.
