Dear all,

It is with great sadness and frustration we have to inform you that ECTES 2020 in Oslo is cancelled!

This includes the ECTES congress and we are also forced to cancel all pre-congress courses. More official and detailed information will follow to all as soon as it is available (see also the ESTES website) from Conventus and the Executive Board.

Sorry about this and hope to see you in the near future.
Take care to all of you in this difficult situation!
