4th CESAMIR postponed due to COVID-19!

In view of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak the Organisers and Scientific Committee have carefully assessed the global situation and after due consideration regarding the health and safety of the participants, have jointly agreed to postpone the 4th CESAMIR Conference which was scheduled from 5th to 10th July 2020 in Stará Lesná, Slovakia.

We thank in anticipation the participants, speakers and supporters of this Conference for their understanding and invite you all to stay tuned for the new dates.


You are visiting the website of the 4th Central European Symposium for Aquatic Macroinvertebrate Research – CESAMIR2020, which will be held on July 5-10, 2020 in Slovakia, in the High Tatras.

Thanks to previous organizers, CESAMIR has already gained a very good reputation among aquatic macrointertebrate researchers, and we firmly believe that it will maintain this high standard.

**4th CESAMIR postponed to 2022**

Dear colleagues, dear CESAMIRers,

despite slight improvement of the COVID situation, the epidemic affected our daily lives and unfortunately also organizing the 4th CESAMIR conference. As you might know, we decided to wait to see if the situation can improve so that we could organize the conference safely. Unfortunately, despite the improvement, the situation remains uncertain. In such a state, the organization of the conference is really complicated and persistent restrictions or concerns about the second wave of the epidemic could negatively affect the conference if it takes place later this year.

Therefore, after discussion with the Scientific Committee, we decided to **definitively cancel the organization of the 4th CESAMIR conference in 2020**. We came to the conclusion that the postponement of the event to 2021 is also out of the question, especially given the likely high concentration of other (planned and postponed) scientific events and therefore **4th CESAMIR moves to 2022**.

Although we are very sorry, we believe that this is the right decision. We were very looking forward to organize an high quality event for you and introduce our country to you. But, we hope that you will not forget CESAMIR, the summer of 2022 will come quickly and we will be able to welcome you to the conference, as we had planned for this year.

In connection with the solution of organizational matters all important information for those who have already registered or paid registration fees will be distributed soon.

We thank you very much for your interest in the CESAMIR conference as well as for understanding.

With best wishes,
Sincerely yours,
4thCESAMIR organizing team

**4th CESAMIR postponed due to COVID-19**

Dear participants and fans of the CESAMIR conference, dear colleagues and friends!

First we would like to express our thanks to all of you for your interest in the 4th CESAMIR.

We hope all you are all right and the COVID-19 pandemic has not hit you significantly.

The current situation in Europe is complicated, and the near future forecasts are not very optimistic too.

This unfortunately concerns also organisation of the 4th CESAMIR 2020 and we had to decide what to do next.

Due to the still **continuing COVID-19 outbreak** and the uncertainty of the summer situation, the **CESAMIR Scientific and Organizing Committee** has discussed the possible scenarios and finally agreed to **postpone the 4th CESAMIR symposium**…

This means, that the **original date for the 4th CESAMIR (JULY 5-10 2020) is CANCELED**.

The **new date will be announced within 1-2 months** (depending on the epidemiological situation) along with further essential information about payments, abstracts, etc.

We wish you a lot of health and thank you for understanding.
