Coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) updates for CNS*2020

This page is constantly being updated. Please check back frequently for updates. Last updated: April 29, 2020, 1200 UTC.

Due to the continuing restrictions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to replace the CNS*2020 Meeting in Melbourne by an online meeting of the CNS community.

We are currently evaluating the possible formats for this meeting, and will update the community shortly on the options. This decision was reached as it is currently difficult for the majority of the attendees to make any travel plans, and as the entry to Australia remains blocked to foreign nationals.

OCNS has issued refunds of all registration fees previously paid for the CNS*2020 Meeting. The current registrations will be carried over to the planned online CNS meeting. All previous abstract submissions remain valid and will be evaluated by the Program Committee for potential presentation at the online meeting. If you do not wish your abstract to be considered, please delete it from the confmaster submission system at

Please contact the OCNS Treasurer for any issues with refunds.
