JSC Events - Measures Regarding the Coronavirus Pandemic

Due to the preventive measures at Forschungszentrum Jülich regarding the spreading of the Coronavirus, all JSC courses and events in March were cancelled. They will be rescheduled later.

For the time being and with the rapidly changing situation in mind, JSC cannot foresee whether courses and events in April and later can take place as scheduled as face-2-face events. Seminar talks might be streamed as video conferences, courses might be postponed or partly given as webinars. We still take registrations for the upcoming courses. All participants who registered for courses so far will be notified by e-mail after the regular registration deadline whether and how the courses will be held.

Please check regularly with the webpage whether upcoming events will take place at all or be streamed as a video conference.
