Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and to the uncertainties surrounding the developments of the current international health crisis, the organisers of the Valladolid seminar – in consultation with CORD – have come to the decision to postpone our annual meeting.
Therefore, ESEM XXXVI will take place in Valladolid in September 2021. The exact dates will be announced in due course. The topic will remain the same: applicants have already been informed of the outcome of their proposals and accepted papers will be expected to be presented one year later than originally planned.
As a consequence of this situation, the Plenary Meeting and annual elections are postponed too: as indicated in the ESEM Constitution (section 4.3.5): “all members of the CORD, including any members of the Secretariat whose term of office should conclude in that year, shall remain in office until the next Plenary Meeting”.
ESEM members, however, will still be updated on the running of the society via the annual issue of the ESEMpoint bulletin, which will be circulated in the coming months.
