EAS2020 and NAC2020 have moved to a virtual conference! This means new features, extra participants and unexpected benefits for the annual EAS conference and NAC conference. We deeply regret not to be able to receive all astronomers in Leiden this year at the end of June, but we look forward to organizing EAS 2021 in Leiden from June 28 to July 2, 2021. The EAS Council decided that the Annual Meeting has become such a key event for European astronomers that we should move the meeting online – as a consequence of the COVID-19 global travel restrictions – if we possibly could. And we now proudly present the first ever virtual EAS2020 and NAC2020!

Your virtual participation is of extreme value! And we need your virtual presence to make the EAS2020 virtual conference a big success! For that reason the fee is significantly lowered to 80 € for the full week and 50 € for 1 day attendance.

We now are very confident that we can offer you a world class virtual event. However, we would like to manage your expectations. As this has never been done before by us, we might experience unexpected hitches and setbacks. KUONI will have a large support team available during the conference to resolve these occurrences and we will instruct volunteers to support each session. Pre-conference there will be a toolkit available with instructions for participants and also for session chairs and speakers.

Via the website, Twitter, Facebook and emails to registered participants we will update you on features and the science you can expect to engage at the conference.

We will fill the website with more information as soon as available. In the mean time, the highlights menu item lists some key information
