Organizer: Thomas Hummel (Dresden, Germany)

Important information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic

Due to the ongoing concerns about COVID-19, the current social distancing guidelines, and the wish of the ECRO board to protect the health and safety of our attendees, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the ECRO2020 in-person meeting that was scheduled to take place September 16-19 in Dresden, Germany. 


We are happy to inform you that a limited online ECRO meeting will be held on September 17 and 18, 2020. Please stay tuned for further details on the program and organization. We are looking forward to meeting with you during these difficult times.
