Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures. The current coronavirus crisis has prompted us to take action on the upcoming XII Barcelona-Pittsburgh Conference edition. After conscientiously studying all the scenarios and given the uncertain and risky situation, in which many countries already prevent or advise against travelling, we consider that the best option is to postpone the conference until we can go back to a face-to-face meeting. It is our duty to live up to the confidence that the experts and attendees have placed in us and our organization. We are willing to assume the cancellation of the conference to prioritize the health and safety of our speakers and chairs, attendees and the conference team. The scientific committee of the conference has always had the firm will to design a conference that highlights the hard work of the speakers and promotes networking to build synergies and create networks that help science grow. That is why we do not want to lose the benefits of a face-to-face meeting and we hope to see you there when we come back stronger when the pandemic is over. As much as we are saddened by this situation, we do believe that in difficult times safety must come first.
