***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** Dear EWGT Members,

a number of potential attendees have contacted EWGT Coordinator, Members of the Scientific Board and EWGT2016 Organizing Committee, asking for advice about the EWGT position on the risk related to the participation to the next meeting in Istanbul (because the well-know situation), or to inform them about their decision of cancelling their attendance.

After a wide discussion the EWGT Scientific Board together with the Coordinator have decided to ask to the Chair of the conference to consider some ways out in order to make easier for the potential attendees to take their final decision about participation.

These ways out were oriented to move and/or shift the conference. In the light of the progress of the Conference organization the Chairman has proposed to hold the conference in September in Istanbul as scheduled and leave authors to decide to give up attending the conference; at once, if one is registered, her/his accepted paper will be published in TR- PRO.

Therefore, EWGT Coordinator and the Scientific Board leave totally free the potential attendees to decide relaxing (notwhitstanding the rules of our Meetings and in the way stated above) the constrains on papers publication. It will be care of the Organizing Committee keep attendees updated about the situation in Istanbul in the next future.

Kind regards,

EWGT Coordinator
