Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The past one year period has been extraordinary for everyone. We hope you are keeping well.

We would like to announce RAP-2021 online conference in September this year and RAP-2022 live conference in June next year.

In 2020 we had to postpone the conference for early June this year. Unfortunately, owing to travel restrictions across Europe and the world, the organisation of a live event in June is not possible. In addition, postponing the conference for the second part of this year still carries a considerable risk. Therefore, we have decided to:

  • organize RAP-2021 from 6-8 September 2021 as a full online event with regular online presentations (presented in real time) and virtual online presentations (sent before the conference and available on the website with no real time presentation). As usual, RAP-2021 conference will publish the Book of Abstracts and Conference Proceedings. In addition, we are considering the publication of a special issue related to most popular topics of the RAP conference in The European Physics Journal Special Topics, published jointly by EPJ and Springer.
  • reschedule the live event for 6-10 June 2022 at the same venue – KEDEA Center, Thessaloniki, Greece. We do hope that RAP-2022 will be an excellent opportunity to enjoy friendly and collegial interactions in beautiful Thessaloniki and together celebrate the return to normal life.


The deadline for submission of abstracts for RAP-2021 online conference is 1 June 2021, and the deadline for the submission of full papers is 31 August 2021. We kindly invite you to consider submission of your contribution and also to forward this announcement to your colleagues who may be interested.

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you soon.
