Due to the latest developments in Covid-19 outbreak, it becomes less and less probable that the ESANN 2020 conference will be organized before the end of April. No decision is taken yet, but we are currently considering to postpone the conference. A decision will be published within a week. In the meantime, please consider delaying making new travel reservations.
The Covid-19 outbreak affects travel plans around the globe. As a relatively small conference (around 150 participants), the risk that the organization of the conference itself will be affected is low. Travellers from abroad should follow the official regulations from their home country to know whether travelling abroad, and in particular to Belgium, is allowed. As such regulations may change everyday we will not duplicate this information here. Please read https://www.info-coronavirus.be/en/ for updated information about the situation in Belgium.
In case of cancellation of registration (non-speakers only), the current situation is as follows:
We have been informed about a possible scam with hotel booking: some (probably fake) travel agency contacts possible ESANN participants by phone, trying to sell hotel rooms at higher costs. Please do not give any information by phone or if you suspect any scam. The conference organization will never ask you to pay higher prices, or to pay through other means of payment, than those detailed on the ESANN web pages.
We suspect that those who are contacted could be some of the authors of papers included in the program (which is publicly available).
Please do not hesitate to report any possible scam.
Deadline for submissions has been extended to November 25, 2019 (any time, any time zone). There will be no further extension.
