2020 yCAM Forum in Toulouse

Important announcement:

due to the extended uncertainty related to Coronavirus/Covid-19, and in agreement with the guidelines by the management of the University of Toulouse, yCAM 2020 has been postponed. 

yCAM 2020 will be postponed to the 28th - 30th October 2020.

As abstract submission and program planning are already finished, we will not open abstract submission for oral presentations again. We think that it is fair to keep all accepted oral presentations as planned. In case colleagues will have to cancel their oral submissions, we will reconsider presentations that have been switched from oral submission to poster. The submission of abstracts only for posters in order to give the possibility to new participants to present their work. The deadlines for poster submissions and registration are postponed accordingly.

Please refer to the following updated information.
