The organizing committee is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. The health and the safety of our attendees is a priority in the planning of the event. Because of this, the conference will be held in a hybrid format with both onsite and virtual versions to accommodate all participants.
We believe that our decision will allow many more people to participate in NoSCoS 2021. At the same time, we hope to be able to welcome as many of you as possible in Stockholm.
We know that nothing beats meeting in person!
The NoSCoS 2021 congress is hosted by the Spinalis Foundation.
