As it looks now on July 2 in Europe, we remain in the hope that it will be possible to run the OCHER 2021 on January 13-15 as planned. We have had some delay in planning for keynote speakers. We hope to be able to announce them by mid July. We have not changed the dates for the rest of the preparations: By August 15: Invitation will be sent to former participants, and announced. Abstract deadline will be September 15. If less than 25 abstracts, we will cancel the workshop. Registration deadline will be October 5 and non-negotiable. If less than 40 registrations, we will cancel the workshop. October 19 is our last date for cancelling, however, we will make clear that changes in the course of the pandemic might make us cancel the event at any time.
