17th INTEGRAL/BART Workshop

About IBWS

IBWS is a series of successful international workshops dedicated to all aspects of high energy astrophysics and supporting ground-based experiments (e.g. robotic telescopes). Within these frameworks, the detailed program reflects the scientific interests of participants as we do not have invited talks but the contributions are submitted by the conference participants.
The workshops promote regional collaboration in galactic and extragalactic high-energy astrophysics, both experimental as well as theoretical, with an emphasis on the interface between satellite projects and ground-based experiments (e.g. robotic telescopes). We continue our emphasis on wide participation and presentations of students and young research fellows.

Dears,

we have been closely monitoring the evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak in all countries. Especially in countries related to IBWS 2020. The Regional Hygiene Station in the city where the conference was to be held was informed about this event.

Unfortunately, as of today, there have been no significant improvements in none of these countries. Some countries increasingly restrict travel as do many institutions, universities, research centres etc.

Following the worsening situation and adhering to an indication from authorities in many different countries, as it is happening for many other (not only) scientific events, we are forced to CANCEL the 17th INTEGRAL/BART Workshop planned to be held at the Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic on 20 – 24th April 2020.

We would like to inform you as soon as possible without waiting for potential last-minute improvements.

Please, therefore, cancel the payment of your registration fee. If you have already completed the payment, please be patient, we will contact you with further information. We are currently working on a list with our accounting department and will contact you within a week.

We sincerely hope that this decision does not create too many problems of reimbursement for those of you that had already bought travel tickets.
With this step, we only try to protect the health of all participants and their surroundings, while preventing further spread as well.

We appreciate your understanding.

Kind regards,

The whole IBWS 2020 team
