    ECREA’s Executive Board and the Local Organizing Committee of the 2020 ECC in Braga are closely monitoring the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic as we are concerned about the health and well-being of our members and conference attendees.

    The conference dates (2-5 October, 2020) remain unchanged at the present time but we wish to announce changes to the deadline for the acceptance of invitations and the registration period to take account of this period of uncertainty and give more time to make decisions about attendance.

    The new deadline for accepted proposals confirmation of attendance is June 15 2020. Registration will open on the same day and the early bird registration will be correspondingly extended.

    To reiterate, our intention at present is to go ahead with the physical conference in October but we will review this on an ongoing basis as well as engaging in contingency planning. We are not contemplating a virtual conference as an alternative to the physical conference.

    Please take care of yourself, your family and your loved ones. Further updates will follow in due course.
