JSC Events - Measures Regarding the Coronavirus Pandemic

Due to the preventive measures at Forschungszentrum Jülich regarding the spread of the Coronavirus, JSC courses were cancelled or postponed. For the time being and with the rapidly changing situation in mind, JSC cannot foresee whether courses and events in the next months can take place as scheduled as face-2-face events. Seminars will preferably be streamed as video conferences, courses might be postponed or partly given as online events. We still take registrations for the upcoming courses. All participants who registered for courses so far will be notified by e-mail after the regular registration deadline whether and how the courses will be held.

Please check regularly with the webpage whether upcoming events will take place at all or be streamed.
