Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, in order to maintain a full international level of scientific and business communication, the ERTICO-ITS Europe Association and the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan have decided to postpone the First Central-Eastern Congress on ITS in Kazan from September 21-24, 2020 to September 19-21, 2022.
