Dear colleagues,

Thank you for considering joining us for NECTM8. The current Sars-CoV2/Covid-19  situation does not result in a cancellation or postponement of NECTM8 at this stage. We are monitoring the situation closely and will follow (inter)national guidelines at all times. A timely and rational decision to hold or postpone our meeting will however be made no later than by April, if not earlier, and will be communicated immediately.
