Dear colleagues, friends, partners,

Since the situation of COVID-19 has been still evolving and the number of infections has increased substantially in numerous countries worldwide, given the uncertainty around international travels restrictions and social distancing measures that had to be put in place in many countries,  ZEBRAFISH 2020 Organising Committee, alongside with the Scientific Committee, has made the final decision to bring the ZEBRAFISH Meeting to the safety of your home or office and offer you to experience the first ZEBRAFISH VIRTUAL MEETING in real time on your laptop or other electronic device.

Mature technology allowed many of us to continue working from home during the pandemic. The same technology will allow us to have a great virtual meeting!
The programme is condensed in two days to encourage everyone to be fully present throughout the day. We have taken time zone differences into account to allow a maximum of participants, from around the world, to present. Virtual ZEBRAFISH Meeting 2020 will include posters and oral sessions, and coffee breaks where you will be able to chat with friends and colleagues, exchange ideas, initiate collaborations, and get useful feedback on your research and also to be in contact with exhibitors and main sponsors and see their products presentations.

Although such a virtual conference may be new for many of us, virtual conferences is not a new thing, especially since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many meetings turned out virtual in the last few months and the feedbacks have been extremely positive.

In order to minimize inconvenience and in anticipation of your questions we are providing some information below to assist you.

  • If you have already registered for the Meeting, your registration will be reimbursed. The registration for the virtual meeting will be open soon. For any questions regarding your registration, please contact registration@zebrafish2020.org.
