1. About Hong Kong Situation / Oct 10, 2019

Everybody is of course concerned about recent demonstrations in Hong Kong and its influence on the BFS World Congress in June 2020. We plan to frequently update the situation via newsletters and the Congress homepage. We can confirm that so far the demonstrations have not affected the daily activities in academia, and expect the situation will have been gradually stabilized by the time the Congress takes place. In the unlikely event that the current venue is not optimal anymore alternative venues in the Hong Kong vicinity areas have been identified.
