Dear future participants,

We are still optimistic for the Biometals2020 symposium in July 2020! 

Nevertheless, we understand that it seems unsafe for you to register now considering the uncertainty and we decide to adapt the registration conditions and deadlines:

- you can preregister and deposit your abstract without paying anything now

- Until May 15th, 2020: registration and accommodation fees and gala dinner will be fully refundable (without any charge)

 - the deadline for abstract for oral communication is postpone to April 1st 2020

- the deadline for early registration is postpone to April 15th 2020


 So, scientists can still pre-register/register if they want to have a chance to attend to Biometals2020 symposium in France.

If the coronavirus epidemic is gone, it will be a nice way to travel and exchange again!
