The HERItage Conference 2020, unfortunately, will not be held this week, due to the situation concerning the spread fo the coronavirus in Europe. The situation in Croatia is completely under control, but following the rapid spread of the coronavirus in Europe and subsequent cancellations we have received from participants so far, today the Ministry of Science and Education and Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued instructions to cancel the conference at this time.

We are in constant communication with the European Commission to clarify whether the Conference will be postponed or completely canceled, and we will inform the academic community and the interested public in the next few days.

The organizational committee offers sincere apologies to all who were looking forward to coming to Opatija this week and being a part of this event, especially to those who have already left their homes and are already on their way to Croatia. 

Thanking you for your great contribution during the process of creating a fantastic program for the conference, we sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. As announced above, as soon as we have any further details, we will let you know.

We kindly ask you to share this information with your colleagues.

Once again, thank you all for your utmost patience, support, and understanding.
