Decision to postpone the RC21 conference to July 14-16 2021

All the activities that have been prepared for the RC21 conference 2020 will be maintained. This includes the paper presentation sessions as much as the plenaries. We will however provide some flexibility to the session conveners who would like to adapt their program and allow their participants to update the title and abstracts of their contribution to the RC21 conference. The sessions and abstracts selected for the RC21 conference in 2020 thus remain valid for the RC21 conference in July 2021.


21 September 2020

Final day to confirm participation by authors of the already accepted abstracts

The authors of abstracts selected for the RC21 conference will be invited to confirm their participation to the RC21 conference before 21 September 2020 on this registration form. They may update their abstract and title, in consultation with their session organizers.

The abstracts that have not been not confirmed will be automatically removed from the program.

23 October 2020

Deadline adjusted session proposals

Session conveners can decide to keep the current accepted abstracts for their session, or they may opt to re-open their session for new abstracts.

Authors who were not able to submit their abstract in time in March 2020 or whose abstract was rejected, can resubmit a new or revised abstract in November 2020.
