Following the discussions and the persistent situation regarding the coronavirus pandemic at European level, it was established that this year’s CIOR Summer Congress will take place online, between 07 – 08.08.2021, without eParticipation fees. The first activity with physical participation will be IBM3, scheduled to take place in Berlin, Germany, between 28-31.10.2021.
