Over the last weeks we have been closely monitoring the coronavirus developments in Switzerland and around the world. Given that our first priority is the health and safety of our attendees, we have decided to postpone PASC20 to 2021.
The new dates for the conference – PASC21 – are July 5 to 7, 2021, at the same location – the University of Geneva (Uni Mail), in Geneva, Switzerland. We invite you to save the dates, and we look forward to welcoming you next year.
We are pleased to announce that our plenary speakers have confirmed their availability for PASC21. Contributors whose submissions have been accepted for presentation at PASC20 will be given the opportunity to provide updated abstracts. Presenters and minisymposia organizers will be contacted separately to confirm their participation and the content of their presentations. Additionally, we foresee a call for new contributions in late 2020.
The postponement of the conference was a difficult decision, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We hope that you will be able to join us next year for an engaging in-person event.
We would like to take this occasion to thank the Papers Program Committee and the Minisymposia and Posters Program Committee for shaping a strong program for PASC20, which will now form the backbone of the PASC21 Conference.
We also would like to thank the sponsors of PASC20 – the Faculty of Science of the University of Geneva, the University of Geneva, DALCO, PSI, NCCR-MARVEL, Microsoft and PRACE – for their generous support.
We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well, and we look forward to seeing you next year on the shores of Lac Léman.
