Due to the situation generated by COVID-19 in large part of Europe and the recommendations published by the Spanish Health Ministry, and after careful consideration of the Organizing Committee, the FortMed2020 congress has been postponed.
We cannot foresee the situation in Spain in two weeks time, but the evolution in other countries indicates no remission of the infection in the short period and the restrictions applied to travelling from different countries would have jeopardized the normal course of the conference. Furthermore, we feel that all of us must cooperate in minimising the transmission of this virus, as a response towards our community and the public health.
Your response to our request of preparing a video for your presentation has been in large part positive and for that we thank you. We considered also the option of having a completely virtual conference, but we finally decided that it is worth keeping the actual format, in order to foster the encounter and dialogue among all the participants.
The new scheduled dates are 1st to 3rd October 2020. Please, save the date! We really hope that all of you can make it to Granada on those dates and help us celebrate a successful Conference. At the moment, the programme published on the Conference website is confirmed.
Conference proceedings will be published anyway. Actually, the three volumes are already printed and the electronic version will be published soon.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience that such a decision may cause but, as said, we consider it to be the most appropriate solution.
Thank you for your understanding.
