Important dates

Below we list important dates and milestones on the way to the first Nordic-RSE conference.

COVID-19 decision timeline

We in the organizing committee are and will be very careful about minimizing health risk for all participants and those affected by participants who travel to the event. We will be closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in Sweden and other countries so that we can decide whether this event can take place in person December 1-2, 2020. We will not just consider if we are allowed to host this conference, but if it is responsible to host it.

Below we share our timeline to decide whether this event can take place. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or suggestions about this aspect.

What happens if we postpone?

  • All registrants will be notified by email
  • We will reimburse registration payments
  • We will postpone the event to 2021 (at this point we are not planning an online substitute, but our online community-building, including smaller meetings, will continue regardless)
