Postponed to 25, 26 and 27 June 2020

Coimbra Health School




Dear participants,

We have always said that the AM2020 theme was ambitious and current. Meanwhile, It had never occurred to us that we not only had to promote reflection and discussion about this subject but also had to put it into practice.

We are planning to carry out AM 2020 exclusively in an online environment. The planned dates (25, 26 and 27 June) and the whole concept of the congress has been maintained, except for the venue. To find the best way to respond to this challenge we are in contact with FCCN-FCT, looking for the best videoconferencing platform that will meet our needs.
The AM2020 will only remain accessible after registration. Closer to the date of the event we will provide information on how to access conferences, workshops and presentations. Our website and social networks will also be updated as soon as all details have been defined.

Authors who submitted their presentations will be contacted shortly, with instructions on how to save them (oral communications on mp4 format and poster in PDF format) so that, they become available to all participants later on. All foreseen publications are for the original stipulated date of the 26th June.
We are counting on your cooperation, despite the different proximity dynamic.

Our Best Regards,

The Coordination
