ScandiNova Users' Meeting 2020, 6-8 May - CANCELLED, REPLACED BY WEBINAR!

ScandiNova Users Meeting in Paris cancelled! Will be replaced by a webinar

2020-03-20 The Covid-19 disease is spreading worldwide and it has developed a major impact also on ScandiNova Users Meeting in Paris, 6-8 May. Due to travel restrictions, cancellation of IPAC 2020 and most important, the significant health risk, we have no choice but to make the necessary decision to cancel the Users Meeting in Paris. The planned conference will instead be replaced by a Webinar taking place 7-8 May. More information to come!

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

2020-03-11 ScandiNova keeps up to date with the current coronavirus epidemic and follows recommendations and guidelines from both local and EU authorities. At present the preparation for the Users Meeting in Paris 6-8 May will proceed as planned.
