SEST 2021 – Going Virtual

The health and safety of our participants are of the utmost importance for the SEST 2021 organizing committee. Hence, due to the CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) situation, which still poses a lot of concerns and uncertainty worldwide, we decided to adopt a FULLY VIRTUAL format instead of the in-person event. The dates and schedule remain totally unchanged. Information of the virtual platform will be confirmed shortly. Thank you very much for your understanding. Take care and be well. All the best.
