Cancellation of NES2018 in Iceland

 Vinnís has had a great positivity from NES Conference attendees for the past years. The response from last year‘s conference in Sweden gave Vinnís optimism and enthusiasm for this year‘s conference. The process has been one of great learning, it has given us both a lot of joy and experience.

 The Conference Committee has been working with a number of great people to meet the challenges of standards and quality we all want to have at NES Conferences. To create a high degree of quality and a good experience for the participants, the conference needs a stable environment which includes participants and abstracts. Unfortunately, this year conference had neither which forces us to cancel. Therefore, it is with a deep regret that the Committee announces the cancellation of NES2018 in Iceland in June.

 In cooperation with the Conference bureau, the Committee will make their best to have the cancellation process as smooth and quick as possible for you. Above all, the Committee sincerely apologizes for all the inconvenience this might cause, and hopes to see you at the IEA Conference in Florence in August.

 Kind regards,
On behalf of Vinnís Board and NES2018 Conference Comittee,
