CORONA NEWS


Dear EFCF stakeholder

These days all of us are dealing with news about the development and spread of COVID-19 (Corona virus). This global pandemic is having significant consequences on our daily lives. In Spring 2020 it was clear that a physical conference in Summertime would not be possible, meaning that, for the first time since 1994, EFCF would not be taking place at the usual time. 

Following the latest government guidelines, the situation looks set to improve to a level that will allow a physical conference to take place in Autumn 2020. Based on this official information we have decided that EFCF 2020 will take place as a physical conference on 20 – 23 October at the KKL in Lucerne/Switzerland. As a fall back solution, we plan also to provide a live on-line access to the presentations for those, who are still not allowed to travel to Switzerland.

Together with our Chairs - Anke Hagen & Peter Vang Hendrikson from DTU a lively and exciting conference with up to 300 contributions will be organised. Find here the latest news about the program.
We invite you now to register for the high level conference with oral sessions, including keynotes, invited and contributed talks, poster sessions, exhibition, tutorials, appreciated, unique networking events like the "Dinner on the Lake" and additional side events, like the preceding GSM 2020 (Grid Service Market symposium, 19 -20 Oct also in the KKL). It is possible to book it with special EFCF rebate and only parts of the GSM 2020.

Register with No Risk - until 30 June with early bird privileges, and until 31. August without late fees - because in case of no show due to CoVid restrictions, EFCF guarantees the full reimbursement of your fees or if you like, down to the reduced fees in case of an on-line participation.

Best regards and stay healthy!
The EFCF organizing committee
