Postponing the 13th European Conference...

14 March, 2020 (updated June 2020)

Dear friends, dear colleagues,

...the update that you have probably anticipated; it is indeed with a heavy heart and after thorough deliberations with our Swiss hosts, that ESSTS has decided to postpone the upcoming Meeting in Lausanne (3-5 June 2020), for next year.
The location will still be the same, -probably early June 2021 and we'll have even more time to measure up to Lausanne's "Best small city in the world" ranking. 💪

More updates will follow in the coming weeks and we shall very soon tailor our online content accordingly.

Regarding the delegates who have already registered for the meeting; we shall of course fully refund the registration and social event fees. Thank you for allowing us a bit of time to handle this vast volume of communication and logistics!

We still feel the bitter taste of disappointment, as we were all looking very much forward to this meeting and its particularly interesting scientific programme this year. We therefore aim at keeping it very much that way for next year, nothing shall be lost!

Be prudent and stay safe!
