OISTAT Architecture Commission Meeting in The Netherlands (18/20 June 2020) -Tour Cancellation and Virtual Meeting Scheduled

3 April 2020

Tim Foster, Chair of OISTAT Architecture Commission updates us on the cancellation OISTAT Architecture Commission Tour and the scheduling of a Virtual Meeting for the Architecture Commission instead. Please see announcement below:

Dear All

It will probably come as no surprise that we have decided we must cancel the planned meeting and theatre tour in The Netherlands because of the Coronavirus pandemic. We cannot predict whether restrictions will have been lifted by then but we suspect many will be reluctant to travel even if they are. The VPT would have had to make financial commitments to reserve hotel rooms shortly and that is not something we can ask them to do. I am indebted to Maaike Westinga and Martien van Goor for putting the tour together. We hope to be able to fix a new date for it, possibly in early 2021.

In the meantime, The Architecture Commission needs to meet this year to elect a new chair and discuss future activities. We aim to do this via video conferencing. Please put a date in your diaries for 1600h (Central European time) on 19 June. More details will follow later.

I hope everybody is healthy and safe and look forward to seeing you again in 2021, if not before.

Best wishes

Tim Foster

Chair of OISTAT Architecture Commission
