Dear Colleagues, dear members of the ICNN6 scientific committee and dear keynote speakers,

We hope you and your families are doing well during this very special period. 

Our thoughts are first with everyone who has been affected. Obviously, the health and safety of all participants of the ICNN6 is for us a non-negotiable priority. We are happy to notice that some optimistic signals are gradually observed in countries that have been largely affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Yet, we are afraid, that it is not realistic to expect that the situation will be fully normalized within the remaining months up to the starting date 1st of September and it concerns issues like travel restrictions, flight schedules, hotel accommodation or even our banquet.


In the present situation, we have to cancel ICNN6 in Hamburg and the situation is too cloudy to decide on a new date.

We would like to conclude with our apologies for any inconvenience we may have caused by the need to cancel the conference.


On behalf of the ICNN6 organizing committee:

Be safe, stay healthy and optimistic.


Sincerely yours,

The conference chairpersons
