The registration for the ISLC 2021 will open in late June 2021

The organizing team for the 27th ISLC is working hard towards an “in-person” conference in Potsdam Germany, with online access for scientists who are not able to travel, following the wishes of the program and regional chairs and committee.

The format will be finalized in late June 2021, based on most recent public health advice.

After their papers have been accepted (notification in June), presenters must then register by 5 July and hence confirm if they will attend in person or virtually.

For the in-person attendees, we will implement in October the latest recommendations from local government and health officials to mitigate risk of infection during the conference and exhibition.

Please visit the conference website for more information and latest updates.
