The Organizing Committee of the International Conference “Protection and Restoration of the Environment XV” recognizes the seriousness and uncertainty of the situation regarding the Coronavirus pandemic and shares with you the concerns and difficulties associated with planning and your physical presence and participation in the venue. Therefore, the Organizing Committee regretfully decided to cancel the venue activities of the Conference that were planned to take place in Kalamata, Greece, from 7th to 10th of July 2020.
Nevertheless, the Organizing Committee in collaboration with the Scientific Committee will continue to complete all other activities, as follows:
