91st GAMM Annual Meeting

GAMM 2020@21

Dear participants of the GAMM Annual Conference 2020@21 in Kassel,

thank you very much for your trust in the conference organization committee of GAMM 2020. We are pleased that despite very understandable reasons only a few participants have cancelled their registration for the annual conference GAMM 2020, which has been postponed to 2021. The GAMM board and the local organizers of the conference in Kassel share your confidence that we will create a great platform for important scientific exchange from March 15 to 19, 2021. It will be a baptism of fire for the young scientists who will present in front of the international audience and thus faster their careers and motivation.

Hosting a pandemic-compatible GAMM Annual Meeting in a situation of dramatic infection figures, is a challenge that is taken up by the president Jorg Schröder, the entire board of the Society for Applied Mathematics and Mechanics as well as the conference organizers Detlef Kuhl, Andreas Meister, Andreas Ricoeur and Olaf Wünsch. We are all convinced to make an important contribution to science. To make this vision possible, we must organize the GAMM Annual Meeting 2020@21 as a pure online conference.

The concept of the online-only conference is to continue the program from 2020 with the keynote speakers and section leaders already invited and the presentations already approved. We kindly ask you all to make your scientific contributions fit for the online format of the conference. We will use ZOOM as the online conference tool, with technicians assisting the section leaders and presenters. There will be a direct link to the online lecture rooms in the conference tool. Lectures can either be delivered live or made available as video - latest by March 4, 2021. The discussions usually following the scientific presentations will be achievable through the virtual presence of all presenters in the online presentation room. Please find below some detailed information concerning organization. We wish you happy holidays and above all good health.

With warm greetings, the conference organization team in Kassel

Detlef Kuhl, Andreas Meister, Andreas Ricoeur und Olaf Wünsch

Dear participants, due to concerns about CoVid-19, the Board of the GAMM and the local organization committee of GAMM 2020 have decided that the 91st GAMM Annual Meeting is postponed to March 15-19, 2021 We will keep you informed about further consequences of the postponement of the conference.

GAMM 2020 has to be cancelled

(German Version see below)

Dear participants,

due to concerns about CoVid-19, the Board of the GAMM, the local organization
committee of GAMM 2020, and the University Management in Kassel have decided
that despite our regrets

the annual conference of GAMM 2020 

has to be cancelled.

The rapid spreading of the virus and disease cases all over Germany and Europe
including the first documented cases in our region make us expect that the
situation will not improve within the next couple of days. Having planned a
conference in enclosed spaces with a high density of people we cannot rule out
a risk of infection and proliferation of the virus. The recommended infection
protection measures like keeping a distance and avoiding crowds of people etc.
are in conflict with the purpose of such an event that includes intense
conversations, discussions and networking.

We will keep you informed about further consequences of the cancellation of
the conference. It was not easy for us to make this decision and we kindly ask
for your understanding.

Absage der GAMM 2020

Liebe Teilnehmer,

auf Grund der aktuellen Entwicklung in Zusammenhang mit dem Corona-Virus muss
in Abstimmung zwischen dem Vorstand der GAMM, den Organisatoren der GAMM 2020
und der Leitung der Universität Kassel

die GAMM-Jahrestagung 2020 in Kassel 

leider abgesagt werden. 

Das zur Zeit exponentielle Wachstum der Krankheitsfälle in ganz Deutschland
und Europa sowie die ersten nachgewiesenen Fälle auch in Nordhessen lassen
erwarten, das sich die Lage in den nächsten Tagen nicht verbessern wird. Die
Gefahr der Ansteckung und Verbreitung des Virus kann daher bei einer Tagung in
geschlossenen Räumen mit einer hohen Dichte von Personen nicht ausgeschlossen
werden. Die empfohlenen Maßnahmen zum Schutz wie Abstand halten und die
Meidung von Menschenansammlungen etc. widersprechen dem Sinn und Zweck einer
solchen Veranstaltung mit intensiven Gesprächen, Diskussionen und

Über weitere Konsequenzen der Tagungsabsage werden wir Sie zeitnah
informieren. Diese Entscheidung ist uns sehr schwer gefallen und wir hoffen
auf Ihr Verständnis.
