Dear MESAEP 2020 Participants,
Thank you for your generous support of the 20th Conference of the Mediterranean Scientific Association for Environmental Protection (MESAEP 2020).
In light of the recent unrest in the world due to the COVID-19, it is with a heavy heart that we have chosen to postpone the conference that was scheduled to be held in April 2020 in Athens by 6 months in order to protect the health and safety of our members and friends and of the wider community.
The organizing committee has been keeping a close eye on the on-going circumstances regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential impact on the conference. We hope the global infection wave will diminish sooner rather than later; yet the World Health Organization has officially declared COVID-19 as a Global Health Emergency with the potential to expand, accelerate and infect new regions and countries.
The new dates are tentatively from 10 to 14 October 2020. Please block them in your agenda. We will confirm them as soon as possible. The venue will still be the same: the Zappeion Hall in Athens, one of the most emblematic venues of modern Greek history.
Deadlines for submission of extended abstracts & full papers and early bird registration will be postponed accordingly. More specifically, abstracts can be submitted until August 15, 2020; full papers for consideration for publication in special issues of the Fresenius Environmental Bulletin, the International Journal for Environment and Public Health, Environmental Research or Toxicology Reports will be requested to be submitted by December 31, 2020.
Reimbursement of Conference registration fees
Registration fees paid before the time of the cancellation announcement will be considered as valid for the October symposium .
We hope you stay healthy and safe and look forward to seeing you in Athens later this year.
