ISRM International Symposium 2020 - EUROCK2020 and the COVID-19 crisis

Dear ISRM members and Rock Mechanics colleagues,

The ISRM is monitoring the current coronavirus crisis in close contact with the Organizing Committee of EUROCK 2020 scheduled for 15-19 June in Trondheim, Norway. We are forwarding to you a message of today from the Organizing Committee of EUROCK 2020. We will keep you informed as appropriate.

Luís Lamas
Secretary General, ISRM

COVID-19 situation - Information updated 17 March 2020

Dear all,

The EUROCK 2020 Organizing Committee are closely monitoring the coronavirus crisis, as it may affect our conference. How, and to what extent EUROCK 2020 will be affected is highly uncertain at the moment. Following a meeting of the EUROCK 2020 Organizing Committee March 17 it was decided that, until further notice, the symposium is proceeding as planned.

However, considering the very uncertain situation in Norway and around the world, we suggest all registered delegates, for their own sake, to make their travel plans accordingly, i.e. to either await any travel arrangements, or to make sure to only book refundable travels, in the undesirable event of a cancellation of our conference at a later stage. For various reasons, postponing EUROCK 2020 is unfortunately no option. For the same reason, we have closed the possibility to register to the conference for the time being, we will come back with more information on 30 March.

The EUROCK 2020 Organizing Committee is in close dialog with the ISRM regarding our upcoming event, and updated information on the status of EUROCK 2020 will be published on our website at latest on 30 March, following a public statement from the Norwegian Directorate of Health. This information will also be distributed by Infomails from the ISRM.

We will continue to carefully monitor the situation via the Norwegian Directorate of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO), and we will keep you posted on any developments. We thank you all for your patience during these special times.

The EUROCK 2020 Organizing Committee.
