Dear colleagues,

due to the current situation caused by COVID-19 pandemic our symposium in Heidelberg cannot take place in May 2020. However, we are very glad that our 8th MRinRT Symposium is postponed to April 19th - 21st 2021, supplemented by a Satellite Symposium on April 18th 20201. The meeting will have the same structure as originally planned and it is very likely that the meeting will take place at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg, Germany. The meeting scheduled for 2021 in Japan will be postponed to 2022.

We will announce our new deadlines (e.g. for abstract submission and registration), fees etc. on our website within the next months.

We hope you all stay safe and healthy.

With sincere regards from the organizational committee!
