UPDATE! Conference in 2021

Annual EAPL Conference in Cluj-Napoca (Transylvania, Romania) postponed

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is with sincere regret that we have to announce that the EAPL conference in September 2020 in Cluj-Napoca is cancelled and postponed to 2021. The decision to cancel has unfortunately become unavoidable. Even if travel and event restrictions might no longer apply in September, it is impossible to plan for such an event in the moment. We are extremely grateful that Laura Visu-Petra and her team are willing to host the conference in Cluj-Napoca in 2021 as well. Exact dates will be announced later. So we look forward to seeing you in 2021 in Romania. Stay healthy!
