Dear colleagues and SPE BALKAN SKI friends,

The opening of the 3rd SPE BALKAN SKI International conference, Rogla 2020, Slovenia was originally planned for today. Unfortunately, due to the widespread coronavirus epidemic, we were forced to change the date.

All of us have changed our lives over these days and we look forward to the future when we can return to the established currents. We also look forward to meeting all of you in December, when we come together again and conduct the planned conference according to the original program.

Until then, we wish you good health and that this uncertain and in many ways unpredictable time will pass as soon as possible and without major consequences.

Stay healthy,
SPE BALKAN SKI Executive Committee

The SPE BALKAN SKI Conference, Rogla 2020 is postponed because of safety reasons!

Dear friends, dear participants,

Thank you for your commitment to the 3rd SPE BALKAN SKI Conference, which was planned to launch on March 22-26, 2020, at Rogla Ski resort, Slovenia. We were enthusiastic to meet you all, share our theoretical and practical experiences, and ski together. The conference is completely prepared, and we were looking forward to seeing all of you next week. You can now find the Book of Abstract here.

Unfortunately, recent developments concerning the new coronavirus have reached alarming dimensions. In the last few days we had a lot of discussions and SPE BALKAN SKI Executive Board meetings. With the responsibility to ensure the health and safety of participants and attendees we took the decision to postpone the 3rd SPE BALKAN SKI Conference to December 2020.

In an effort to carry out the conference in the same framework, with the same programs and, above all, with the same top experts, we contacted the main players beforehand to get their confirmation of participation in the conference during the rescheduled time. We are pleased to announce that we have their endorsement, which means that the December conference will be at the same or perhaps even higher quality level.

The conference is now postponed to Sunday 13th to Thursday 17th December 2020 and we look forward to completing 2020 in your company!

On Monday 16th March you will get all information about the refunding process and new key dates for early bird registration.

On behalf of SPE BALKAN SKI Executive board,
Prof. Rado Pišot, PhD.

IMPORTANT!

Dear colleagues, dear friends,

We would like to give you some important information about the current situation with the Corona virus (SARS-CoV-2), which is spreading throughout the EU. Slovenian National Security Council decides that all indoor events has to be limited to 100 people and outdoor events to 500 people. As we plane many outdoor activities - workshops, social activities, demo show, lectures - there are no reasons for changes or cancelation procedures so far.

In any case, we will take all safety precautions to protect the health of the participants.

Please follow http://www.spe-balkan-ski.com/news where you will be informed about possible changes.
