2020 ISERT Assisi Conference postponed until 11-14 April 2021

After following the developments of COVID-19 pandemic, the conference organizers and ISERT Board have taken the sad decision to postpone the ISERT Conference planned for next 17-20 June 2020 in Assisi. We have followed suit to many other academic events taking place during next months and that have been cancelled or postponed for the same reason.
We have decided to hold the postponed Conference in Assisi from 11 until 14 April 2021 at the same conditions and cost. Those who have registered will keep their registration. Those few who have paid the fee can claim to be refunded upon explicit request to If you do not re-claim, we will keep your deposit for the next conference.
