Dear attender of Scand-LAS2020,
We are very sorry to inform you that the Scand-LAS2020 symposium in Tallinn has been postponed to 13-15 April 2021 due to the pandemic situation resulting from the spread of COVID-19, as declared by the WHO. The Estonian Government has declared a state of emergency in Estonia and closed the borders for all but those who are inhabitants of Estonia. Even if borders should be opened before the planned symposium in May, it is highly likely that gatherings with over 100 participants will still not be allowed.
As your comfort and safety is our top priority, it has been decided that this is the best course of action to give as many people as possible the chance to attend the symposium without exposing them to health risks. Therefore, the board of Scand-LAS together with the organising committee of Scand-LAS2020 has decided to postpone the event to 2021.
All registrations that have been made so far will automatically be transferred into next year. However, if you would like to cancel your registration, and receive reimbursement, please e-mail to the symposium secretariat: email@example.com no later than 15 April 2020. In this case, a 35 EUR handling fee will be subtracted from the paid sum as per the cancellation terms. Please allow some time for processing the reimbursement.
We will be sending a separate letter to those who have booked accommodation through our website on Friday at the latest.
All of the abstracts submitted and accepted for 2020 will also be accepted for presentation in 2021, with the possibility for you to update the abstracts based on the development of ongoing research and projects if needed.
We will keep you up to date via the event’s homepage, Facebook page, LinkedIn and also e-mail.
We will try to make the best out of this unfortunate situation and are doing our best to make the transition as easy as possible.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding immensely!
Stay healthy and see you in April 2021!
