The latest coronavirus related developments could have an effect on planning for our conference. It is not certain that existing restrictions regarding public meetings and travel will be lifted in time for our participants to organise their attendance at RAP 2020. In addition, even if formal restrictions are lifted, the disruptions of work and private plans due to the current coronavirus measures may prevent many participants in realising their original plans and coming to Thessaloniki in the first week of June.

For this reason we are considering an option of postponing the conference to the first week of September. It would be held at the same venue from 31 August to 4 September. We still have not made the final decision on this, but are closely monitoring the situation and will have to make the decision soon.

We would greatly appreciate it if you could give us your thoughts on this. You can contact us at

We would like to wish you and all those dear to you the best of luck in these difficult times.

Abstract Deadline Extension

We would like to inform you that the abstract submission deadline is extended until April 30, 2020, hoping this extension will give you enough time to finish your abstract(s).

Up to 3000 characters long abstract(s) (including spaces) should be entered via the abstract portal at the ABSTRACTS PAGE. The figures, equations, tables and references must not be included in the abstract.

Please note that it is not necessary to send an abstract to participate in RAP 2020 Conference. If you do not have a contribution, but you wish to participate, you will be able to register yourself as a regular participant and take participation in this event!

Abstracts imported until March 1, 2020 will be locked and sent to evaluation. The notification of abstract acceptance will be sent until March 31, 2020 for those abstracts.
