COTEC-ENOTHE 2021 goes Virtual

Dear Colleagues,

We hope that you, your family, colleagues and friends are safe during these challenging times.

After careful consideration of the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Organising Comm­ittee decided to hold the COTEC-ENOTHE Congress 2021 as a fully virtual congress. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the situation for international travel remains difficult and planning includes significant uncertainty.

The virtual congress will be held as planned on the originally scheduled dates of September 15–18, 2021. The virtual format will combine live streams, exhibitions and Q&A sessions during short and man­age­able time slots to facilitate real-time exchange with and within the international audience.

With our best regards and hope to meet all of you during our virtual COTEC-ENOTHE 2021! Stay tuned and stay safe!

With kind regards
