AESOP would like to acknowledge TU Wien, that hosted the Executive Committee meeting and the Council of Representatives meeting on March 11th and 12th, 2020. It was unfortunate that the related 2020 AESOP Head of Schools Meeting had to be cancelled due to the Austrian governmental guidelines and overall situation regarding Covid-2019.

We wish to thank in particular our colleagues Thomas Dillinger and Andreas Voigt for their leadership and the Local Organising Committee for their excellent cooperation and support. ExCo would like to particularly thank the Vienna LOC for their flexibility in these unforeseen and exceptional circumstances.
