Dear Delegate

It is with sore heart that I advise that, unfortunately, we have to postpone the H3D 2020 Symposium.

I am so sorry that your plans of visiting Cape Town, attending and / or presenting at the Symposium this month will have to be changed now, but I look forward to greeting you at the replacement Symposium, which we hope we will be able to hold in the not too distant future.

We will provide more information once the situation is clearer.

In the meantime, please keep yourselves, families and friends as safe and well as can be.

Best wishes

Kelly Chibale
