EURALEX 2020 moved to 7-11 September 2021
After much consideration, the Organising Committee of Euralex 2020, in consultation with the Euralex Board, decided to reschedule the congress to 7-11 September 2021. ‘Euralex 2020’ will thus take place exactly one year after the original date. Our goal is to avoid disruptions to the original programme and to ensure that as many people as possible can accommodate the new date into their schedules. Please note that there will be two volumes of Proceedings: One released in November 2020 and a second one released in July 2021. Presenters may choose to have their work published in either 2020 or 2021, but not in both. For all new deadlines, please see the congress website at https://euralex2020.gr/.
On March 27 the Agreement stipulating the rights and responsibilities of EURALEX and Democritus University of Thrace, in connection with the organization of the 19th biennial international congress, was drawn up. This Agreement was signed by the President of EURALEX, Gilles-Maurice de Schryver; the Rector of the university, Alexandros Polychronidis; and the Organiser of the congress, Zoe Gavriilidou. The event will take place in the deluxe Ramadi Plaza hotel & convention centre in Alexandroupolis, Greece, from 8-12 September 2020. The signing event was accompanied by a press conference, which resulted in wide media coverage in the local newspapers, including a cover-story in the Observer of Thrace.
