Update on IWGT Meeting Format

By | Meetings | No Comments

Please see the below message from the IWGT Organizing Committee regarding the upcoming IWGT meeting format:

You will be aware that at IWGT our preferred format is on-site attendance in order to maximize interactions with the Working Group members. However, in view of the continued Covid-related travel restrictions, we anticipate many interested scientists may not be allowed to attend IWGT in person. We therefore decided to extend the options to join IWGT remotely, and to move towards a “hybrid” format.

We will therefore now accept registrations from scientists who want to attend IWGT remotely, and to do so scientists should use the below link to register, and identify that they will be attending virtually. The registration fee will remain at 250 Euro.
