SoundTrack_Cologne 18 moves to autumn
4/8/2021

The vaccination situation in Germany is sobering: given the current speed of vaccination, it is not to be expected that enough people will be vaccinated in eight weeks to realise SoundTrack_Cologne physically. Travel options to and within Europe remain unresolved for June, too. These circumstances make a smooth and safe realisation of the conference in June impossible, therefore with a heavy heart we have to announce that SoundTrack_Cologne 18 has to be postponed to November. The new date is: November 17 – 21, 2021
