We are very sorry to announce the postponement of BioEPR 2020, scheduled to take place in Novosibirsk from 29th June to 3nd July, 2020. We are taking this action now so that all payments can be returned to participants and before foreign participants have had to pay for visas and travel.
This postponement is, obviously, due to the escalating coronavirus situation. We have left this decision as long as possible, hoping that this situation would be resolved rapidly. But now it is clear that it is impossible for participants to make informed decisions about attending and to make definite travel plans.
We appreciate the high level of interest and support for BioEPR 2020. So we definitely intend to hold it next summer, probably in the June-July, 2021 timeframe. We hope to see all of you there and will give priority to applicants that had already registered for this summer.
Those of you who have already paid the registration fee can be confident that we will refund it. You will be contacted soon to arrange the details.
Please accept our sincere apologies for this postponement. We thank you for your support and wish that you stay safe and healthy in the weeks and months to come. We hope very much that you can participate in BioEPR in the summer of 2021 and we look forward to welcoming you to Novosibirsk then.
Co-chairperson of BioEPR 2020 Elena Bagryanskaya,
Co-chairman of BioEPR 2020 Michael Bowman,
