Meeting Organization Information

Due to the pandemic situation and its impact on planning and scheduling of conferences and gatherings in 2021 the traditional Ultrafine Particles Symposium, held in Brussels every second year, will be postponed to 2022. But to maintain the scientific and societal contact and exchange on that issue a very condensed three-hours online meeting of the community will be organized free of charge. Meanwhile all around the globe there is now enough experience with digital tools for teaching and conferencing. Nevertheless, this online meeting 2021 does not replace the Symposium in presence.

11th VERT Forum postponed to March 25th 2021

at EMPA-Academy, CH-8600-Duebendorf, Ueberlandstrasse 129, 9:00 to 18:00, opening and registration 8:00

Dear Colleague,

because of the worldwide continuing threat by the COVID-19 pandemic the VERT Board made the decision in alignment with EMPA to postpone the VERT Forum from September this year to Thursday March 25th 2021.

Switzerland seems to be quite safe by now but nobody can predict what will happen after the vacation weeks which are starting now. The VERT Forum is an international meeting and we are expecting many guests and speakers from other countries which makes predictions even more difficult and since we feel responsible for your safety and health during this event we had to come to this decision. The VERT Forum is also known for communication and networking and we therefore resisted on the temptation to offer a digital meeting.

We basically want to keep the main items on the agenda as announced but we would like to also use this Forum as a virus filtration event to make public that our industry can support the society with best available technology to clean the breathing air not only from soot particles.

Our sincere apologies to coming again to you with such bad news, but looking forward optimistically to another fascinating event at the forefront of new BAT-emission control technologies.

with best regards on behalf of the organizing committee
