Meeting Description:

***WAFL 16 postponed***

After careful deliberation with the host institution, National University of Mongolia, we have decided to postpone WAFL 16 for one year, to September 23-25, 2021, due to the pandemic. National University of Mongolia has kindly agreed to host it. We will announce the deadline for abstract submission in the summer.

This was a difficult decision arrived at after discussions with a number people and groups. In the end, we decided that the safety of the participants cannot be compromised in any way.

We hope to see you at WAFL 16 in 2021 in Mongolia!
