The difficult situation in Italy and worldwide due to the COVID-19 crisis makes very difficult to attend conferences and workshops.
After internal discussions on the possible solutions, it was decided to postpone the Workshop for the end of June 2021.
The exact dates and further organization details will be circulated around as soon as possible, while the website will be updated at the beginning of next year.

We are very sorry for this inconvenience, but in this situation it is the best and most reasonable thing to do.
For any question or information, please don't hesitate to contact us (lenpa2020@mi.infn.it).
Thanks for your attention and stay healthy.
