The CIG Symposium 2020 is canceled

We regret that all events at the University of Lausanne have just been canceled until September 2020.

As members of the organization committee, we therefore sadly decided neither to postpone nor to virtualize our symposium, but to simply cancel it. We did not want to overload an already busy virtual conference schedule, and we understand that our speakers’ and participants’ priorities will be to safely restart their labs and experiments as soon as this becomes possible.

With our very best wishes,

Maria Cristina Gambetta & David Gatfield
