Congress Postponement

Following the latest developments related to COVID-19, the Organizing Committee has decided to postpone the Congress, which was to take place on April 14, 15, and 16, until early July 2020. Specifically, the new dates initially planned are July 07, 08, and 09, 2020.

At UFRJ, among the actions regarding the prevention of COVID-19, the suspension of all extracurricular activities such as scientific events, in which the Congress is included, was determined. In addition, we are aware of the travel restrictions imposed by European universities for congress participants and scientific committee members.

We regret the inconvenience that such a decision may cause, but we have defined that this postponement is necessary in view of the existing situation.

Finally, we would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone involved in the Congress, and express that we count on your flexibility and understanding in this delicate moment. We have provided a document on the Congress adjournment for any actions you may need, available for download at this link.
