Re: The ATW-2020 has been postponed to Nov. 4-7th, 2021 in Shenzhen, China due to COVID-19 concerns

 

Dear Colleagues,

We sincerely hope this letter finds you well and healthy!

Given the uncertainty of the current status and aftermath of COVID-19 outbreak and the international travel restriction imposed by governments, many people worry about any international travel this year. On behalf of the organizing committee, we have decided to postpone the 19th Ataxia-Telangiectasia Workshop (ATW), which had been originally scheduled to be held in Shenzhen, China, on Oct. 29-Nov. 1st, 2020. The rescheduled meeting date is November 4-7th (Thursday-Sunday), 2021. We believe that, by then, people will feel comfortable to coexist with or be free of  the virus and travel.

The meeting will be held in the same place, organized by the same group of scientists, and ensured with the same scientific quality along with your contribution. We sincerely hope that the rescheduling will not preclude you from joining us in the ATW-2021. We will update the meeting website http://www.atw2020.cn/ shortly and keep you posted of the meeting progress.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused by this postponement. We are looking forward to seeing you in Shenzhen in November 2021.

We wish you all stay good health and doing well!

Best wishes,
