Important information regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

LPM2020 will definitely take place

Dear participants and authors of the LPM2020

we fully understand the general concerns that currently exists regarding the coronavirus and, in the context, about your contribution and participation in LPM2020. The current crisis is a challenge for all of us and we are of course available to answer your individual questions and concerns about LPM2020.

In this context, however, we would like to confirm once again that LPM 2020 will definitely take place.

There is no question that the health of all participants, exhibitors and employees is our highest priority. Nevertheless, it is absolutely essential to maintain the transfer of technology and knowledge even in this difficult situation and thus prevent even worse and long-term damage for science and industrie.

In order to ensure your secure participation in LPM2020, regardless of developments in the coming weeks, we will offer a professional and easy-to-use online solution for LPM2020. This solution will allow participants as well as authors who are not able to travel to Dresden, Germany for LPM, to follow all contributions of the LPM2020 via livestream and to give their own presentation, no matter if lecture or poster, via webcast.

Depending on the developments in the coming weeks, there will be two possibilities how the LPM2020 will be held:

  1. It will take place on site in Dresden with an additional web solution for all participants who cannot travel.
  2. If national and international travel activities are still not allowed until then, it will be offered as web conference only.

We would like to ask you to continue to support us in our efforts to maintain the international transfer of knowledge and to be open to new ways of communication and exchange in these difficult times.

We thank you very much in advance and are available for your individual questions at

Your LPM2020 team
