Dear friends, dear colleges, dear sponsors,

Unfortunately it is clear now that due to the Covid-19 epidemic it is impossible to organize MSOA as planed from 14-17. May 2020.

We would love to organize this conference and welcome you in Slovenia in May 2020; we have been enjoying in preparations for almost 4 years. We’ve received so many positive, supporting responses from more than 110 invited faculty members, from people whom we respect a lot regardless of the fact that it would be difficult for them to join us at these difficult times. More than 120 attendees have already registered to the conference. So many friendships, so many help and all sorts of support to our MSOA2020 conference we received - it was overwhelming trying to organize it. Sincerely thank you for all that.

Due to many postponed congresses and conferences, due to bad epidemic situation still going on, due to a vast number of meetings and ideas to globally change our ways of life with reduced traveling and gatherings – the decision was made. Our wish is to postpone MSOA2020 to the spring 2021. Many very important conferences will be postponed too and we would not like to force our Faculty members, sponsors and attendees into making difficult decisions, choosing between conferences or even expose them to danger. We are planning to have “online meeting” with other members of MSOA steering committee and will try to find the best time frame for MSOA2020 . We will keep you posted about our decision soon.

Thank you so much for supporting us as hosts of MSOA2020 Conference. We were eagerly looking forward to welcoming you at our conference this May – unfortunately Covid-19 epidemic made this impossible. We are hoping that we will have the opportunity to meet you soon.

Warm regards,
MSOA2020 Organizing committee
