Important Information

Because of concern about the spreading of the new corona virus (SARS-CoV-2), the Austrian government has closed universities and ordered all indoor events with more than 100 participants to be cancelled at least until the beginning of April 2020.

Similarly, the Austrian Academy of Sciences has taken precautionary measures to protect all external participants, speakers and staff members by ordering cancellations of all events, regardless of the numbers of participants, until mid-April.

For this reason, we find ourselves compelled to cancel the 19th Annual Conference on European Tort Law (ACET), which was scheduled for 16 – 18 April, 2020. We sincerely regret having to take this step but hope that, by doing so, we help contain the spread of the virus.

If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact lisa.zeiler(at)
