UPDATE March, 6, 2020

Dear participants,

More and more countries and organizations apply travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 Virus (or the threat of being quarantined). We already received a number of cancellations from lectures due to travel restrictions by their organisations. In addition, the prognosis is showing an escalating trend for the weeks to come.  

Based on the above we have no choice, but to postpone the ELINDER DigiDecom Training to a later date this year. This will ensure that all participants as well as lecturers have the possibility to attend without offending their organization’s restrictions. 

As we cannot foresee with reasonable certainty when the situation will be better, we cannot issue a concrete new date at the moment. According to the current prognosis, the pandemic will reach it’s peak by end of March or mid April. We will carefully watch the situation and will come back to you with a new date as soon as possible. 

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but at the same time we feel the responsibility for the well-being of the attendees. 

We have negotiated with the hotel that there is no cancellation fee for the pre-booked rooms. Please cancel these with reference to the postponement of the meeting.

We will keep you registered from our side. For those who want to be refunded instead, please give us a note.

In the meantime, we are considering to set up some online session (not as a replacement, but to shorten your waiting time a little bit).

Kind Regards Franz Borrmann & István Szöke
