Dear SHAIO colleagues,

Due to the unprecedented situation caused by the COVID19 pandemic, the special incidence that it is having in Spain, as well as the uncertainty about how the situation will evolve in the coming months, we are forced to cancel the VII Edition of the Workshop SHAIO that was previously schedule to take place next September in León. The special circumstances we are experiencing have led us, the SHAIO Council and the Local Organizing Committee (LOC), to delay its celebration until September 2021. We want to thank the LOC for their understanding and availability.

This change in dates will also affect the holding of the 9th Conference on Input-Output Analysis, which originally were to take place next year 2021, but which will be delayed until 2022.

It is a painful decision, given that these activities are one of the fundamental reasons that justify the existence of our association, but we sincerely believe that right now we cannot guarantee acceptable conditions for its celebration.

We would like to inform you that we are working on a program of online activities to supply the “face-to-face” meetings and to maintain the exchange of our research and ideas. Along these lines, we will contact you again shortly to inform you in more detail of the content of the activities that we are beginning to carry out and of which we will keep you informed by our RRSS and at http://wio7.shaio.es.

We would like to wish you the best in these difficult moments.

All the best wishes from the SHAIO Council team.

Esteban Fernández Vázquez
On behalf SHAIO Council
