on behalf of the Organizing Committee, I report with deep regret that we are forced to make a decision to cancel the 8th International Maar Conference due to the dramatically fast developing situation with coronavirus in Europe and other parts of the world. Many of the participants would be unable to travel, others would be forced to quarantine themselves at arrival, some of the air routes are unable at the moment and unfortunately there is no way to predict how the situation will develop within months. We understand that planning such events and your own travel plans need to be done well in advance.
We greatly appreciate your trust and your willingness to come to this very distant part of the world. We promise that we will return to this idea when the world would become a safer place again. At the moment, we are saying a great thank you to everybody who contributed their works. In spite of the cancellation we are going to publish the Abstract book with all submitted abstracts online at the conference web-page.
With best regards to all of you,
Dr. Alexei Ozerov
Chair of the Organizing Committee
