We are very sad that we will not be able to have a typical REFSQ dinner with great food, good music and lots of dancing!

But we will use this session to foster the social gathering with new and old acquaintances, share old memories, discuss new ideas and conduct some very new “virtual REFSQ” activities.

Further details about this session will be published soon!
