Conference date postponed from April to September
Dear participants, friends and supporters of REAL CORP,
as you might have expected during the last couple of days, it has now become fact that due to the current situation all over the world REAL CORP 2020 has to be postponed.
Public life in Europe has more or less come to a standstill, business trips and crossing borders are prohibited at a large scale. These circumstances made the toughest and most painful decision inevitable that we have had to make in 25 years of CORP history: we have to postpone the date of REAL CORP 2020 conference! It hurts a lot, but in the end we were relieved of the decision, events of this kind are currently not possible in Germany and Central Europe.
During the last 48 hours we were in permanent negotations with our partners from RWTH Aachen in Germany, and we are happy to announce that we could already fix a new date. So, please save the date:
REAL CORP 2020 is going to take place from 15 to 18 September 2020.
We hope very much that you can join us in September at RWTH in Aachen.
There will be accompanying and additional measures for REAL CORP 2020 during the original timeframe, that is mid of April 2020, as well as in the preparation phase until September to ensure an even better and more extensive conference experience:
* there will be remote digital activities on the original date in April 2020,
* the conference proceedings will be published as planned,
* the detailed programme has been prepared and will be used as a basis for a later date,
* we still have a few ideas in the quiver, how we can make an even better event out of necessity.
We are going to further inform on details during the upcoming days and weeks.
