The COVID-19 pandemic has made physical meetings and intercontinental travel very limited. Therefore it has been decided to further delay the HVTT16 until September 7-9 of 2021. As there is still a great deal of uncertainty about the extent to which we will be able and willing to travel next year, the organizing committee in China has decided to run a “hybrid” symposium where it will be possible to participate in the HVTT16 both physically in Qingdao and online.
