SSHAP 2020 Update

At the present time, the Ninth Annual SSHAP Meeting at the University of Vienna has NOT been cancelled. However, given the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19, there is a significant chance that we will be forced to cancel. We know that many scholars who were planning to participate are facing travel and funding restrictions, and we will make a definitive decision by mid-April. We are also looking into possibilities for postponing the conference to a future date, in case of cancellation. Our best wishes to all for your safety and health.
