Dear friends, dear colleagues,

We regret to inform you that the spread of the Covid-19 virus has forced us to move the EADO congress from April 22-25 to 12-14 October 2020, in Vilnius, for reason of force majeure.

In Lithuania all events with more than 100 participants are prohibited with immediate effect. Many colleagues from Germany, Austria, Italy and other countries have informed us that they will not be allowed to travel in the foreseeable future.

Against this background the unavoidable decision was to postpone the congress or to cancel it. We have examined the possibilities of a postponement and have now booked the date of October 12-14. We hope that the situation of the coronavirus infection will have eased by then. We will ask all speakers if they can take this new date.
