ISCONTOUR 2021 suspended!

Dear friends and supporters of ISCONTOUR,

The current global developments of the Covid-19 pandemic and the uncertain outlook for the first half of 2021 makes it impossible for the ISCONTOUR conference board to go ahead with the planning of ISCONTOUR 2021. Safety and health for all delegates and participants of ISCONTOUR have the highest priority for us.
Therefore, we have decided with a heavy heart to suspend ISCONTOUR for one year and schedule the 9th ISCONTOUR for May 2022.

Thank you for your understanding and loyalty!
