Postponement of the next GTA conference to 2022 and (possibly) the general assembly until 2022


Postponement of the next GTA conference to 2022 and (possibly) the general assembly until 2022

The 22nd scientific workshop of the Society for Gestalt Theory and its applications was planned for June 2021 in Trieste (Italy).

However, it is currently still uncertain how the corona-related epidemiological situation will develop. This uncertainty will also have a massive impact on the organization of the conference in the next few months. It is also uncertain when and if travel and accommodation options and conference conditions will be available on site. There is a danger that organizational measures already initiated by the conference committee in Trieste will prove to be in vain due to new and further developments.

For these reasons and after intensive consideration, the GTA board, together with the organizers in Trieste, has decided to postpone the conference planned for next year to June 2022, also in Trieste.

We are confident that by 2022 conditions will have returned to normal enough that a large, ambitious conference can be planned and held again. We would be very happy to welcome you all to Trieste in 2022 and thank Prof. Agostini, Prof. Cataruzza and Dr. Coppola for the further planning and preparations for the 22nd scientific working conference.

 

When and in what form the general meeting can be held is currently the subject of intensive legal and organizational discussion. The GTA board will inform all GTA members by email as soon as a solution has been worked out.
