Dear ICOP2020 Community,

We hope you are all doing well.

As you were previously informed, the ICOP2020 Italian Optics and Photonics Conference was postponed to September 9-11, 2020. However, current legislation prohibits the event from taking place "live". Therefore, have decided to organize the event virtually over the same period (September 9-11, 2020).
Over the next few days, we will provide you with instructions on how to register for and to participate in this virtual event.
We appreciate your understanding and sincerely hope to see you virtually in September!
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

The ICOP2020 Organizing Committee
