See you next year!

Due to concerns regarding the corona-virus (COVID-19) outspread, we have been monitoring the international situation and recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO) and global health authorities, as well as the advice of local Portuguese authorities. The safety of our members and conference participants is our top priority.
Considering the most recent developments all over the world and in Portugal, we have decided to cancel this year's conference and postpone it to next year. The Porto Conference Organizing Committee will restart the conference planning, and new announcements will follow.
Until then, keep safe and stay healthy.

We look forward to meeting you in Porto in 2021!
