Due to concerns regarding the spread of the corona virus, several of our international speakers have cancelled, the organisers have also placed restrictions on arranging international conferences. Because of this, we will unfortunately have to move the conference and our plan is to host it in the spring of 2021 together with the IEA and Task13.
