The coronavirus pandemic has affected everyone’s lives and unfortunately our conference is no exception.

In the light of the current situation, we have decided to move the conference online. We are currently working on figuring out the best way to arrange the conference in this new format and will keep you updated about the progress here and on our Twitter (@sppsphd) and Instagram (@spps_phD).

The registration to the conference is temporarily closed while we figure out the details. For further details pls check conference web:  SPPS PhD Conference homepage
