Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As a result of the ongoing uncertainties around the coronavirus pandemic, especially with respect to travel and social gatherings, we have made the rather difficult decision to cancel the 2020 DGG-USTV meeting, initially scheduled next June in Orléans. For some practical reason, it is not possible to postpone the meeting at the end of this year or next year.

We would like to thank all of you for having either submitted abstracts or planned to come and attend this conference. We are sure that we will meet in others scientific meetings.

We really want to thank our german colleagues who organized last year a very nice meeting in Nuremberg and we hope than in the future we can organise a new DGG-USTV meeting in France

Stay safe and healthy,

On behalf of the Orléans committee and the French glass society 

D. Neuville
President of USTV
