ESA is very aware of the present challenging situation due to the new coronavirus. The ESA 2021 Conference will take place either with the full physical co-presence of all attendees, or wholly online, or in some hybrid mode combining these two possibilities. ESA is currently working through all these permutations to make the conference happen successfully.

We are keeping a close eye on the changing situation in Barcelona, across Europe and in the wider world, and decisions about how to hold the conference will be made in light of ongoing governmental advice. ESA members can be assured that the conference WILL take place, one way or another.
