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.

Live event

The ESTI Winter Course 2020 – Online Edition will be a live event only. Lectures will not be available to watch afterwards.

All timings refer to CET – Central European Time. Please pay attention if you live in another time zone!

Around December 09, all active/paid registrants will receive a personal email with the login link to access the online platform. Please make sure to check your spam folder in case you can not find this email and/or do not hesitate to contact the ESTI Office.
