To the Geoscientific community:
In view of the worsening of the dissemination situation of COVID-19 in our country, the organizing committee of 50ºCBG, together with the Executive Board of the Brazilian Society of Geology, informs the POSTPONEMENT of the 50th Brazilian Congress of Geology that would be held between 11 and 15 October 2020 in Brasília – DF.
In view of the new pronouncements and determinations of the Brazilian health authorities in the face of the escalation verified, we understand that the safety must be prioritized not only for each participant, speaker, sponsor and guest, but for the community in general.
Thus, in a joint effort and to ensure the tranquility and security of all, we will change the date of 50ºCBG for the second semester of 2021, keeping the place previously scheduled (Ulysses Centro de Convencoes – Brasília – DF).
We are working to inform and publicize, in the coming days, the new date of the Congress and the respective updated schedule of all activities, through our social media channels. We inform that all registrants will have their participation automatically renewed for 2021. In case of doubt, we kindly ask you to contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We emphasize that confirmation of acceptance of the submitted abstracts is expected to be released on June 25th.
We are committed to providing an excellent program at 50ºCBG 2021 and your participation is very important for the success of the congress. We hope to count on your understanding and flexibility at this challenging time and that the new date of the congress fits your agenda.
We thank everyone for their understanding of this postponement, which, unfortunately, was determined by unpredictable events and beyond the reach of the Brazilian Geological Society, in the context of this unprecedented global crisis.
Brasilia, June 10, 2020.
