Cancellation of VeRoLog 2020

Dear visitor of this website,

the coronavirus situation has led to the point at which we cannot continue with the preparations of the conference. University institutions are closed, staff, students, and professors are sent into home-office, and permissions to organize events such as ours are revoked. While the measures are not for June 2020, yet, continuing with the preparations does not make sense. Many people are restricted from traveling, and passengers returning from trips abroad are asked to stay in voluntary 14-days-isolation. 

We value the personal health and safety of you as participants more than anything. In this light, we cannot risk bringing ~200 people together in closed rooms, coffee breaks, and on a boat for the conference banquet. Therefore, we have no choice but to cancel VeRoLog 2020, which was scheduled for June 2020 in Hamburg, Germany.

We hope for your understanding, and we sincerely apologize for the inconveniences caused. Refunds of the paid conference fees will be arranged.

Sincerely yours, and on behalf of the organizing team,

Martin J. Geiger
