Notice

**** Update: the physical meeting in Kaiserlautern is canceled! ****

 
Some parts of the event will take place virtually. There will be more information her as soon as we know more.


The global situation regarding travel and health has changed due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Unfortunately, some of the speakers of the workshop prior the AHs20 will not be able to attend due to local travel restrictions, hence leading to the cancellation of the workshop.

However, we will prepare an alternative casual program for people who registered and will be in Kaiserslautern on March 15th. This casual program will be adjusted to the number of participants that will attend the workshop. Some of the speakers outlined on the web page will be available locally who will participate in the discussions and hands-on sessions. If you have already booked your travels and intend to visit us, you can still come to participate or present.

We apologize this last minute change and are doing our best of the current situation. We are looking forward to meet you at Kaiserslautern or catch up with you via electronic channels.
