Given the current epidemiological situation, the 47th Annual Meeting of ICOHTEC in Eindhoven (scheduled for July 13-19, 2020) will not take place physically on location. This also applies to the connected Summer School. The decision was made after thorough consultation between the ICOHTEC officers and the Local Organizing Committee.

However, we are seriously considering organizing the 2020 symposium in a digital format. We expect that due the current lock-down situation and its foreseeable aftermath (many other meetings have been cancelled), ICOHTEC members may be particularly eager to have professional exchanges with their international peers.

We hope to make a go/ no go decision for such an online congress by Mid-April. All of you, whose paper and session proposals have been accepted, would be invited to take part.
