IMPORTANT NOTE
You have to be a member of ESA to participate at the conference via zoom.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the uncertainty and risks surrounding the current (and likely future) global health situation, the organizing committee has made the (hard) decision to postpone the conference from its initial date (September 2-4, 2020) to a new date (JANUARY 27-29, 2021) AND move the conference entirely to an ONLINE FORMAT.

We are working on the details and logistics of this new format, but the latest information available points to the conference being hosted by the University of Bologna (Italy) and held online using a web-conferencing platform (e.g. Zoom or Microsoft Teams). We will provide updates timely to all the (prospective) participants, as soon as we have further news.
