Dear PRES family members,
We got inquiries about whether the novel coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) would affect the PRES’20 conference or not.
The conference committee officially announces that the PRES’20 conference schedule is un-changed, as we totally believe the outbreak is well under control by the Chinese authorities.
In the case of emergencies, we would postpone the dates by mutual agreement for the sake of public health if it is necessary.
We will update the news every month. The organisers of PRES’20 sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
The Committee of PRES’20
