COVID-19 – Corona virus disease Update

Information and Updates for the OSC2020

20 March 2020

We know that we are all facing a difficult situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic which demands a lot of re-organization and makes it hard to plan several months ahead. Nonetheless, we are still encouraging you to send your abstracts for the Open Science Conference and All Hands meeting while we are assessing all possible scenarios for the organization. All abstracts already submitted will be fully considered, regardless of any potential change in the event. We will continue to keep you updated via this page.

We understand your concerns with international travel and meetings this year given the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic.

Be assured that containing the spread of the virus, and preserving the health of the participants are two priorities for the OSC2020 Organizing Committee. With almost four months until the event in Leipzig, it is still too soon to consider a cancellation or postponement of the Open Science Conference and All Hands meeting. We will be monitoring the situation closely and adapt the timeline for abstract submission, early-bird registration and cancellation as appropriate. In the unlikely event that the OSC2020 is cancelled, participants will be fully reimbursed of their registration fees (with the exception of the bank transfer fees).

Updates on the situation will be posted on this page and all participants that have created an account on the registration platform will be informed via email as well.
