We regret to inform you that due to the COVID-19 lockdown in all almost countries, and with the uncertainty on what will happen in the next months and how the restrictions will evolve (mainly in Italy), the school Directors and local organizing team have decided to postpone the Metaheuristics Summer School in 2021.

March 22, 2020:
The coronavirus situation is drastically getting worse in many countries, and consequently all countries are imposing strong restrictions, included the closure of all in and out public transports.
We are carefully and continuously monitoring the situation and its evolution. To date, we cannot assure if we can go on with the planned date, or the school will be postponed. In any case we can assure to everyone that the School will be held only if there will be all safety conditions for the participants.
