Re: Allschwil Meeting 2020

Hello

After the Covid crisis, is it still planned to organise this meeting ?

I check with my agenda, an for me, 2020, November 7 & 8th are still ok: it's better because I won't be close for the next monday, working not far from Dijon.

Thank you for any more information

Olivier
