Online

"Anthropomorphism"

Where can it take us?

Dear all

 

First of all we hope to find you all safe and healthy, together with your families and loved ones. 

 

Due to the continued situation with COVID-19 and the unpredictability of international travel and of the possibility to gather in large groups later this year, the Boards of ECAWBM, ESVCE, AWSELVA and VDWE have recently agreed to organize the 2021 conference as an entirely online event.

Early Bird registration will be open from May, 15th until June, 30th.

Registration will be closed on September, 22nd.

 

We promise this will be a memorable event!

 

Christine Halsberghe

President of the local organizing committee.
