ISQua Statement on COVID-19

(Correct as of 19 March 2020)


 We are aware of the concerns raised by the Coronavirus outbreak (also known as COVID-19), and our thoughts are with all those, who have been directly affected, in Italy, China, South Korea, and all other affected countries.


ISQua Conference 2020

We can overcome this challenge by showing solidarity with all affected by COVID-19, especially in Italy. So we are working hard to stand by our Italian colleagues and have no immediate plans to cancel our 2020 Florence Conference


We will continue to monitor the situation and we will keep you updated (


In view of the current situation, we have extended the early bird deadline from 19th May to 15th June and all abstract results will be sent to submitting authors by the end of April.


We look forward to seeing you all in Florence.
