Technically Co-Sponsored Conferences


2020 21st International Radar Symposium (IRS)
October 5-8, 2020
Warsaw, Poland

As the outbreak of the epidemic virus has been growing rapidly worldwide, many governments have made every effort to overcome the pandemic virus by discouraging public gatherings, closing schools and public places and suspending international flights. These may cause travel restrictions and inconveniences to the conference participants. In accordance with the public health policy taking into account the ongoing and developing situation with COVID -19, the decision has been made to postpone the MRW 2020. The conference will therefore not take place as originally scheduled, during May 18-21, 2020. Our plan at this time is to reschedule the conference for 5 – 8 October 2020.
