In the heart of Europe, cultures swirl together in a creative mix of art de vivre, know-how, heritage and surrealism. This creativity allowed us to respond flexibly to the challenges posed by COVID and continuously changing travel restrictions, resulting in the surrealistic but successful experience of organizing NURETH-19 in a virtual setting, with a small team on-site in Brussels for 710 participants connected on-line from 33 countries all over the world.

A total of 1035 abstracts submitted to the conference resulted – after a thorough review – in 614 papers accepted to the program, delivered in five very full days, spread over six parallel technical sessions. 11 excellent keynote speakers highlighted state-of-the-art developments in innovative areas. The Opening Plenary evolved around the conference’s main theme Lead the Flow.

The local organizing committee would like to thank the general chairs, chairs and members of the different conference committees, sponsors, technical team and all colleagues that have made this unique conference a success!
