EACS 2021 Goes Digital

(April 2, 2021) After careful consideration, the EACS Executive Board and the EACS 2021 Organising Committee have decided to convert the postponed EACS conference into an online event. This news will be disappointing for many but is probably not coming unexpectedly. International guests need to complete their travel plans in advance and many universities do not sign travel applications at this moment. Entry restrictions to Germany remain unforeseeable. While we remain optimistic that the world will be a better one by August, decisions need to be taken based on the present condition. We want EACS 2021 to be more than an ordinary online conference. We will transform the programme into an attractive online version that is engaging and has sufficient networking possibilities.
