31 July 2020

Dear Sir/Madam,

The 6th CIFA Symposium Organising Committee has been carefully monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic since its outbreak. In the light of the latest development, we have decided to postpone the Symposium that was originally scheduled to take place on November 25-27 in Taipei, Taiwan.

This is not an easy decision, but ultimately the public health and safety of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, staff and volunteers have led all parties to conclude that postponing the Symposium to June 9-11 2021 is a most advisable one. Please mark the dates in your diary! The detailed rescheduled programme will be announced in due course, please keep following our official website at https://cfrc.ntu.edu.tw/cifa for more details.

Please stay tuned for more information and details as plans progress. We will be sending out more information over the next few weeks. Your patience will be much appreciated as we navigate to make the necessary arrangements for such changes.

Meanwhile, please take note of the rescheduled dates as following:

PROGRAMME DATE
Deadline for abstract submission 31 December 2020 (Thu)
Announcement of acceptance of paper 31 March 2021 (Wed)
Deadline for early-bird registration 30 April 2021 (Fri)
