Unfortunately the theme of the 2020 ESHMS conference failed to anticipate the viral pandemic and so rather than imagining beyond crisis, we find ourselves in the middle of one.

It is with great regret that the meeting scheduled for 27-29 August 2020 in Uppsala University is hereby cancelled.

We hope that the 2022 conference will be convened by the University of Bologna in 2022. Details in due course.

For those who have paid their registration fee by card, you will have a full refund of the conference fee to the same card your payment was made from. Please note that the payment will come from “Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet”. For those who paid by invoice, you will get an separate e-mail with instructions for repayment.
