EUBS ANNUAL SCIENTIFIC MEETING IS POSTPONED TO SEPTEMBER 2021
Dear friends and colleagues,
the unpredictable events associated with the spread of the covid-19 pandemic in recent months have already prompted us to change and postpone the date of this major scientific event. The Annual 46th EUBS Conference will be held for the first time in the space of two years in the nearly 50-year history. At least that's what we're hoping for at the moment, filled with optimism and belief in improving the situation. We believe that with all epidemiological measures and especially vaccination of the general population, the virus can be brought under control.
So the conference is currently scheduled for September 8-11, 2021, at the same location, the NH Prague City Hotel. However, in early March there will be important and decisive discussions between the members of the Organising Committee and the Executive Committee of the EUBS, which will decide whether and what form the conference will take. Our highest wish is that the epidemiological situation in the world should allow for the personal participation of as many participants as possible, as we feel that in our professional community there is a predominant effort and desire to meet in person both during lectures and during discussions in and outside the meeting room and, above all, during social events after the end of the official scientific programme, as has been usual during dozens of previous conferences. However, neither mixed (hybrid) nor purely online form can be ruled out at the moment.
The situation is evolving very rapidly and is also changing not only on individual continents but also at national and regional level. So deciding the right option is not an easy task, and it is evident that it will not be clear until the last minute whether the choice was the right one.
In the meantime, please follow the latest information on this website.
We wish you good health and faith in better days in the period ahead,
Michal Hájek, on behalf of the Organising Committee of the EUBS 2020/2021 Conference
