Dear friends, colleagues and participants of ALCOMA 20,
today, we - the organizers of ALCOMA 20 - regret to inform you that
ALCOMA 20 has been cancelled due to Coronavirus/Covid-19.
Unfortunately, the situation has dramatically worsened since our last
message from March 5th, 2020. Many participants are facing travel
restrictions imposed by their university or government. Moreover, today
the Bavarian Ministry of Science ordered that classroom teaching at the
University Bayreuth is to be discontinued until further notice.
Looking at the pace of the development within the last two weeks,
further severe restrictions are only to be expected till the planned
beginning of the conference.
Taking all these circumstances into account, we came to the conclusion
that the only sensible decision is to cancel the conference.
However, we strongly hope that instead of ALCOMA 20 there will be an
ALCOMA 21 in 2021.
In collaboration with our university administraton we try to send back
your registration fees in the next few weeks.
Hoping that you are and stay healthy, we send our best wishes,
Michael Kiermaier, Sascha Kurz, Alfred Wassermann
