#5 Update COVID-19 and the Berlin conference May 8, 2020

The corona crisis and the uncertainties and risk involved when organizing an international conference in the near future have made it impossible to stick to the pre-announced timeline for planning the conference. To give all of us further time under these difficult circumstances, we extend the registration deadline to May 20.

We still are committed to maintain scientific exchange even through these unusual times. We are working hard on organizing the EALE-SOLE-AASLE World conference 25-27 June, 2020 and aim to offer online presentations at a reduced fee.

We apologize for the continued uncertainty and will provide more information as soon as we can.

Previous updates since March 8, 2020:

#2 Update COVID-19 and the Berlin conference March 12, 2020

 We will continue our work on planning and delivering an excellent World Conference on labour economics.

As the new measures in various countries to prevent the dissemination of COVID-19 make it difficult for many of us to register now, we decided that the early registration date for paper presenters and participants for the Berlin conference remains open until April 15, 2020.

As this unprecedented situation is changing every day, but hopefully will improve over the next weeks, we remain watchful and stay in close contact with the relevant health authorities in Germany.

#1 Update COVID-19 and the Berlin conference March 12, 2020

Immediate measures to prevent the coronavirus spread are currently taken in Germany and other countries. This will force us to take a decision on the organization of the Berlin conference.  We therefore have to close the registration and will communicate any further news later.

 

EALE SOLE AASLE CONFERENCE BERLIN IS GOING AHEAD

Because of the global challenges presented by COVID-19, some of you have been asking whether we plan to postpone or cancel our joint EALE SOLE AASLE world conference in Berlin scheduled for June 25-27, 2020 (still 15 weeks away). We have NO plans to postpone or cancel at this time. We want to let you know that the organizing team at Humboldt University, EALE, SOLE, and AASLE continue to plan confidently for the conference.

We are very grateful for the support of our program committee and the program chairs working on the scientific program and last but not least we appreciate that a sizeable number of people has already registered for the conference.

The world conference organizing teams are in close contact with the relevant health authorities in Germany. We focus on the facts and act with common sense and judgement, taking the advice of the relevant authorities and scientists. As this unprecedented situation is changing every day, we remain watchful but also focused on planning and delivering an excellent World Conference on labour economics.

Please check the conference website www.eale.nl for periodic updates as the situation evolves.

We look forward to welcoming you to the EALE SOLE AASLE World conference in Berlin and wish you all the best.
