Course information

The coronavirus pandemic is having a huge impact on both our personal welfare and educational activities. Statements from public health authorities worldwide are recommending that public meetings such as workshops and congresses should be avoided. Some countries are now allowing smaller gatherings with social distancing, but the many travel restrictions are still affecting future on-site meetings.

After careful consideration, ESTI have decided to change the format of the Winter Course, and to host a two day digital conference from December 10-11, 2020.
