Dears,

we have been closely monitoring the disease progression of COVID-19 worldwide. Especially in countries related to AXRO 2020.

We would like to meet all those interested in X-ray optics, radiation and its detection at our traditional AXRO conference held in December in Prague. At present, however, our main concern is to protect the health of all participants, their surroundings and us.
Some institutions, universities, research centres etc. including the whole countries from these reasons restrict travel to many regions.

Therefore, we would not like to launch registrations too early.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely, and we will issue a notice in early September this year to launch registrations or move the conference to next year.

We believe in understanding these measures and hope that they will not harm your eventual interest in attending the conference.

Kind regards,

The whole AXRO 2020 team
