The ECTS recommend that you do not make travel arrangements for the conference at this point in time. As you may be aware, there is no official French restriction for meetings planned for May. However, it is becoming clear that contingency plans have to be made for a likely postponement of ECTS 2020.

Please save 20-24 October in Marseille as alternative dates.

The context is that in the last days, severe measures in travel and meeting policies have been adopted across Europe and worldwide following the spread of COVID-19.

Our priority is to allow the ECTS community to attend safely, while maintaining the high level of quality of the scientific programme.

The Annual General Meeting will be held as planned on Saturday 16 May at 12.30hrs, as an online meeting and ECTS Members will receive the official invitation soon. All other upcoming events will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis as will the conference itself.

Please check the website regularly and you can contact the congress secretariat in case of questions:

We are sorry for any inconvenience that this situation will cause you and we would like to thank you for your understanding and continuous support. Please stay safe and take care of yourself and those around you.

Our heartfelt best wishes
