The 9th World Conference in 3D Fabrics and Their Applications was planned to take place on 2 and 3 April 2020 in Zhengzhou, China. The recent coronavirus outbreak in China has caused much attention and led to deaths of infected patients. The local governments have put limitation on people’s travelling in the most affected areas as a measure to restrain the spread of the disease, and it is, at the moment, hard to see when the situation will change for the better. To best protect our conference delegates against the outbreak of the virus, the organising committee of the conference has decided to postpone the conference until a later date that is absolutely safe to have the conference. Please accept our apologies if this would cause any inconvenience to you but our delegates’ health and safety are the top priority for considerations.
The Chinese authorities are working hard to put a control over the problem and let us hope the situation will revert soon. As the conference organiser, we will closely look into the situation and will propose another date for the conference when the conditions become satisfactory.
The abstracts submitted will still be reviewed and decisions will be sent to you in due time and you will be advised to produce your full papers according to the conference paper format. Your collaboration will be much appreciated.
