Dear colleagues,

It’s a pity but in the current situation of COVID-19 pandemic, we have to cancel our PFM-2020-SPM conference in Ekaterinburg, Russia scheduled on August 18-21, 2020.

According to the decision of All-Russian ferroelectricity conference committee, VKS-XXII is rescheduled on August 2021. About SPM and PFM, the question is still open.

Hope, everything is good with you and your families.

I wish you health and productive distant work.

See you in 2021.

Best regards,

Vladimir Shur
