Dear All,

We are really sorry to be in the position to write this news, but unfortunately, due to the current COVID19 pandemic, we must cancel and postpone the VIII EWDSy 2020 event.

This is a hard decision, but due to the difficulties that all the countries are currently facing, and will have to face in the next months, we believe that this is the best decision to take. After careful consideration, the organizing committee has decided to postpone the VIII EWDSy to May 2021, still in the Certosa di Pontignano.

The 2020 Edition of the EWDSy was supposed to be a special edition, dedicated to the memory of Prof. Maurizio Botta. For this reason, we have decided to organize a 2 days mini-symposium at the end of August 2020  to celebrate Prof. Botta. We will post more information soon if you wish to participate to this event. We will be really happy to welcome you and your collaborators in Siena in May 2021 for the VIII EWDSy, or for the 2 days mini-symposium in August 2020. If you have any question about the cancellation of the event or the participation to the future workshop, please don’t hesitate to contact us
