Dear Aerogel scientists,
dear colleagues,

given the situation that no travel arrangement and no visa procedures are possible till at least July,  we have to  postpone our   5th INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR ON AEROGELS as well as the Summer School in Cologne to September 2021.

However, we will organize an “Online Aerogel Seminar 2020” at our original seminar dates 16.-18. SEPTEMBER 2020  with selected oral presentations per ZOOM or similar programm, online  poster session accomponied by 1-2 min. videos for each posters,
and webinars for specific topics. We plan also the poster Prizes as usual. Also companies are welcome to submit their video materials about new aerogel products and we can organize an industrial session out of it.

I think this way would still give us a possibility to keep in contact with the colleagues untill physical meeting gets possible. I hope many of you would join us in this event! Let’s be creative together in this difficualt time.

We are still collecting the ideas  for the online event, so please feel free to write me if you have any creative suggestion!

In view of this situation we substitute the original call for abstracts by call for abstracts for this “Online Aerogel Seminar 2020” (16.-18. SEPTEMBER 2020), but prolong now the deadline till 15.June 2020.

All already submitted abstract for the physical seminar will be also considered for the online event, unless you write us not to do so.

Conference fee will be drastically reduced 🙂 and communicated at the website soon!

Best regards,

Irina Smirnova
