Covid-19 – Impacts on the 16th European Conference on Spacecraft Structures, Materials and Environmental Testing (ECSSMET)

In light of the global Covid-19 outbreak, the 16th European Conference on Spacecraft Structures, Materials and Environmental Testing (ECSSMET) aims to support international efforts to slow the spread of the virus and ensure the safety of individuals and communities. As a result of the pandemic, ECSSMET 2021 will be held as a virtual conference. ECSSMET 2021 is the first time that ECSSMET has been held as a virtual conference.

The virtual conference will take place from 23.3.-25.3.2021.

We believe that virtual conferences are likely to play an increasingly important role in supporting our fellowship, expanding participation in the conference and tackling the global challenge of climate change. In times of the Corona Pandemic, a virtual ECSSMET is an opportunity for us to be creative and to develop innovative and complementary ways for our community to interact.
We look forward to welcoming you to the virtual ECSSMET in March 2021.

For more information, please visit our website www.ecssmet2021.de. In addition, in October 2020 an updated web presence will be launched, which will represent the new virtual conference format and will provide more detailed information on the virtual ECSSMET 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you to the virtual ECSSMET in March 2021.
