Cancelation of the 3rd LACA School on Small Molecule Crystallography due to Covid-19 pandemic

UNAM Main Campus,

Mexico City, March 12th 2020

Dear participants of the 3rd LACA School on Small Molecules Crystallography,
As you are aware, the 3rd LACA School on Small Molecule Crystallography is scheduled to take place from March 23rd to 29th in the main campus of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) in Mexico City. However, due to the current Covid-19 pandemic and a projection made by expert scientists predicting that a spike in the number of Covid-19 cases in Mexico will occur between March 20th and 30th, the UNAM has banned all events requiring massive attendance (particularly those involving international participants), as a measure to control the spread of the virus. Therefore, I regret to inform that we are forced to cancel the 3rd LACA School on Small Molecule Crystallography until further notice.
Email has been sent to all registered participants with further information
The Organizing Committee and instructors are truly sorry to have to cancel the event one week prior to its start, especially, since it took more than a year to plan and organize. I hope that you understand that the circumstances that led to the cancellation of this event are beyond our control.
Finally, we would also like to thank you for your trust, support and interest in the School and wish you all the best in this challenging time.
Please, do not hesitate to contact us in case of any doubt at 3rdlaca@iquimica.unam.mx
With Best regards
Organizing Committee
