Current situation regarding COVID-19 in Italy

Dear colleagues,

The Organising and the Scientific Committee of the ICA2020 and the ICSZ2020 are closely monitoring the COVID-19 spread in Italy and also around the World. We are of course following the nation-wide precautionary measures.

Even though the current situation might influence the conferences, we intend, for now, to hold them as planned. However, we are developing strategies in close contact with our headquarter and the local and national authorities to guarantee the safety of our attendees. In case we need to postpone the conferences due to government-mandated restrictions, the conditions of participation will remain the same and all accepted contributions will be kept.

We will keep you updated. Please do not hesitate to contact us anytime!

Best wishes,

Julia, Alexa, Michael and Pascal (Organising Committee)
