Registration; Lausanne 2021 & virtual meetings update

Despite our initial -moderate- optimism to contemplate a real, physical meeting in Lausanne in the fall later this year, we have decided along with our Swiss organisers that the upcoming 2021 Meeting will be organised virtually in October 2021.

Detailed updates will be regularly posted on the News section.

Until then...

As announced earlier in January, we are organising ESSTS' first virtual Meeting on 22 April 2021, at 3pm-5pm (CEST).

We call it a "teaser" Meeting, for it's only the beginning!

The Meeting is open to all interested parties and free of charge, only a simple registration is required. (keep scrolling, you will find the registration form at the end of the page)
