Dear colleagues,

In the current situation, we are struggling with the situation and limitations caused by COVID-19 pandemic. Before being able to act ourselves, we received the information, that any meeting of this size (more than 100 participants) has been prohibited by a recent directive of the state. Thus, it is very likely that the symposium cannot take place in May 2020 as originally planned.

We have been discussing different scenarios and arrived with the conclusion, that we have to consider, to postpone the meeting until spring 2021. This of course has to be discussed with the scientific committee and the organizers of the next meeting, planned in 2021 in Japan and we are still in close contact with them.

As soon as we arrive with an alternative date, we will inform you about this online here. However, registrations for 2020 are not possible anymore.

We would kindly like to ask you to give us some time to react, as nothing works normally these days. We are confident, that we can arrange a successful meeting in 2021 and hope you will join it.

Until we have further news, we hope you all stay safe and healthy.

With sincere regards from the organizational committee!
