Home office for Copernicans

We see it as our civic duty to protect our staff members, their families, and our fellow citizens during these challenging times following the recent coronavirus outbreak. We decided to move into 100% home office from 16 March to 20 April 2020. Rest assured, our staff members are at your disposal during the normal working hours and can be contacted by email whenever needed. The only limitation is that we are not reachable by telephone.

We promote the sciences by organizing conferences and exhibitions worldwide, publishing highly reputable peer-reviewed open-access journals, supporting associations in the fulfilment of their tasks, and developing appropriate software solutions for achieving these aims. Promoting scientific work is our focus. Serving those dedicated to science is our passion. Experience more and take a look!
