Welcome to the 3rd LPMO Symposium

«Due to the unprecedented events related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the LPMO Symposium 2020 Organizing Committee has regretfully decided to postpone the conference until 2022. The location will still be Oslo and we will hopefully also use the same venue.

More information will be provided in due course.”
