On the basis of the current situation of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, the Committees of the ISORA-QTNA2020 conference (Xi'an, China, August 19-23, 2020) has decided to cancel the conference.
This was a difficult decision, but inevitable decision to make. We take the opportunity to express our utmost gratitude to the chairs and members of Committees.
