** Postponement Annoucement **

Dear All,

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the related difficulties, the WOS organising committee, together with the International Scientific Committee, have agreed to postpone the conference scheduled originally for 2021 to September 25-28, 2022. The conference will take place in the same venue, in Algarve – Portugal.

If you have already participated in one of the previous WOS conferences, you may know that the “soul” of this event is to provide participants with strong personal interaction and networking, including a special emphasis on the social events. However, it is difficult, if not nearly impossible, to predict what conditions we will be facing in September 2021 but it is very likely that social event bans and travel restrictions will be still in place during this whole year.

We are sincerely sorry to have to take this exceptional decision forced on us by the context of this health crisis. Be assured that all considerations are being taken into account to lessen any inconvenience due to this update. If you have any questions regarding this update, you can contact us wos2021@wos2021.net

Thank you for your understanding, your involvement and your participation in the success of the WOS 2022.
We look forward to meeting you next year in Algarve.
Stay safe and healthy in the meantime and have a Happy New Year

Best regards

Pedro Arezes
‘WOS 2021/2022 Organising Committee
