Programs of previous CoSI conferences are found under “History“.

Notice: We are preparing  for Virtual CoSI 2021 and continuously updating our website. For  specific questions contact the Conference office.  (Last update: 20-01-2021)                                   ———————————————–#———————————————

In view of the cancellation of CoSI 2020, we will give priority to Oral and Poster Abstracts  accepted in the previous program of 2020. Several of the former presenters may, however, not be able to join the conference in 2021 due to corona related issues, and for this reason we have had special Call for Abstracts which is now closed.
