Dear Presidents of the ISRM National Groups

As you may already know from the announcement on the ISRM website and from the organizers, the 2020 ISRM International Symposium - EUROCK2020, to be held in Trondheim, Norway, was cancelled. This was a difficult decision taken by the EUROCK2020 Organizing Committee in constant dialogue with the ISRM. In view of the current COVID-19 pandemic and of the strong restrictions to travelling, this became an inevitable and also a wise decision.

The Organizing Committee and the ISRM agreed that the conference proceedings, including several of the keynote lectures and more than 200 high-quality peer-review papers originally submitted for EUROCK2020 will be published in the platform, subject to the authors' consent.

As per the previous email sent by this Secretariat on 29 July, the ISRM meetings scheduled for the days before EUROCK2020 in Trondheim have also been cancelled. The Council, Board and Commissions meetings will take place as video-conferences during October.

Best regards. Keep safe,

Dr Luís Lamas
Secretary General, ISRM
