The message from the ERIS 100 Organizing Committee

ERIS 100 Postponed to 2021March 31, 2020

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Following a thorough consultation with the Romanian Academy under whose aegis we operate, as well as with our key stakeholders, we regretfully have to announce that ERIS 100 - The 1st International Karst Science Forum to be held in Bucharest, Romania, in June 2020, will be postponed to 2021.

Having spent the past nine months planning the Forum with our organizing committee, keynote speakers, participants, and event partners, we are sincerely disappointed not to be able to greet you in Bucharest, in June. However, we live in unprecedented times when health and human life take absolute priority, and staging a scientific event of any kind is neither possible nor advisable.

We will also work to refund all registration fees as soon as possible, but please note that our administration is currently working at minimum capacity and so this may take some time. All abstracts will be withdrawn to allow for new or updated submissions in the second half of this year, as we will know more about ERIS 100 Forum 2021 structure. To stay informed on developments, please sign up to the ERIS 100 Forum mailing list here or follow the news on the website. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

Please pay attention to best practices during these stressful times, and stay healthy and safe.

With warmest regards,
The ERIS 100 Organizing Committee
