With regret we have to inform you that we have to postpone the WMC 2021 once again, planned for 13th to 17th of September 2021, due to the still ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic. We have taken this difficult and complex decision after consultation with the Scientific Committee, the Organization Team and the Eurac Research headquarter. We apologize for the inconvenience to all participants, but the current worldwide situation has made this decision unavoidable.
Nevertheless, we are happy to announce that we have already fixed the new dates for the WMC in 2022, which will now take place from 5th to 9th of September, 2022.
We sincerely hope that all colleagues who have planned to participate at the WMC this year and who have already started to plan or organize their trips will be able to change or cancel their travel arrangements and join us next year. With regard to the abstract submission and registration we have made the following agreements:
Abstract submission: We have closed the submission process for 2021. We will inform you as soon as we reopen the abstract submission. For those who have already submitted an abstract, we kindly ask you to send it again when we reopen the abstract submission.
Registration: Participants who have already registered will be fully reimbursed. We will close the registration and re-open it at the end of this year, as we have to re-organize all social events, including the social dinner and the hike to the Iceman finding site.
Conference website: We will keep the conference website open and update it with the new dates and all relevant information, including new deadlines and events.
In the meanwhile, we wish you, your families, friends, loved ones, and colleagues good health throughout these challenging times and we thank you for your patience, understanding and ongoing support. We hope to see you all in Bolzano in 2022.
