Dear colleagues and friends


Unfortunately, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the planned AWTEC 2022 conference in Hangzhou. Although currently there are no longer strict travel restrictions in China, there is still the ongoing impact of the pandemic on visa applications and international travel. Furthermore, there are only 3 months before the expected meeting time, making it very difficult to prepare a high-quality international conference in such a short period. After careful consideration and consultation with AWTEC Executive Board, it has been decided that it would be best to cancel the conference at this time.


We recognize that this decision is very disappointing. We apologize to all the colleagues and friends who have planned or made arrangements to attend this conference, and we also apologize to all the AWTEC OC members and EWTEC advisory committee members who helped a lot in the preparation of AWTEC 2022. We assure you that we will be doing everything we can to apply for organising AWTEC again in the future.


Thank you for your understanding and please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.


Best regards,

AWTEC 2022 Organizing Committee
