EBSA newsletter April 2021

2020 and 2021 conferences and courses

thank you!

As you are aware, the Covid-19 pandemic forced Council to first postpone twice the annual EBSA conference and courses due to be held in 2020 in Luxembourg and, ultimately, to definitively cancel the meeting. Despite the cancellation, the EBSA working groups CPWG and ETWG, as well as the Luxembourg Local Organising Committee, worked extremely hard for the conference to happen and, besides the significant work they did in organizing the infrastructure, the high valued presentations, the organization of the preconference courses and invitation of instructors, also had to manage the uncertainty of the whole situation. When the conference was finally cancelled, they did not hang down their heads but instead immediately started to set up the webinars and online courses taking place in fall 2020. EBSA would not exist if it could not rely on this outstanding engagement of the working groups and their members. Council would like to thank heartily this work and the devoted members of CPWG and ETWG, and the Luxembourg LOC.
