On behalf of the URCC Organizing Committee
In view of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, we would like to apologize for all inconveniences caused since we need to postpone the URCC conference.
The situation is evolving so quickly. Between yesterday and today, there have been new events: the first death in Spain, the significant increase of contagions and much more drastic measures to contain COVID-19 diffusion here and in the neighbouring countries. In any case, while everything has been prepared for having this conference successfully done, we believe it is irresponsible from our side to proceed at this moment. Considering the circumstances, we must not put our colleagues, families and city at risk. Especially, considering it is not an essential meeting to have next week. We still have a margin in this project to organize it in a couple of months once we have more information about this virus outbreak.
We would also like to take advantage of this opportunity to ask all of you to bring the below information to individuals, colleagues and families’ attention.
Collective responsibility towards the most vulnerable people. It is key we all remain informed about the virus.
We apologize again for any inconveniences caused and trust in your support and due diligence to stay safe and healthy, and taking care of your family and loved ones.
