Dear lecturer/participant/applicant of Quantum Connections 2020,
In recent weeks, we have all witnessed how the challenges posed by COVID-19 are rapidly growing across the world. For this reason we now write to you, as a planning measure, regarding the Summer School which we have been busy organizing for some time.
Unfortunately, while we are very hopeful that the state of play of COVID-19 will rapidly improve, we write now to inform you that we have decided to postpone our Summer School by one year, to take place in June 2021.
By postponing this event by one year we are hopeful that you can now already mark June 2021 in your calendar, for the next Quantum Connection events: The preliminary dates for Quantum Connections 2021 School are June 13-26.
Due to the uncertainties regarding the coronavirus pandemic and the situation with the vaccinations around the world, the organizing committee has decided to postpone the Quantum Connections 2021.
