Virtual Conference

Virtual Conference

Due to the covid situation developing further, we have decided to run the whole conference as a virtual event.

We regret this, as we have been looking forward to meeting our partners face to face this time. But in the light of the situation, we consider travelling and meeting in person to be too risky right now.

We are still looking forward to the conference, and to seeing you on Teams again for interesting talks and discussions.
