Dear Colleagues,

As a direct consequence of the prevailing situation with regard to COVID-19 it has now been decided to cancel CSW’2020. This is of course a very regretful situation, but clearly unavoidable. We sincerely thank you for your interest in CSW’2020.

The decision has been taken to move the conference until May 2021 in Stockholm, and we hope to see you all then.

To partly compensate the authors for their efforts in submitting abstracts for CSW’2020 they are given the opportunity to publish their contributions as full-length papers in a special issue of physica status solidi (a/b) of Wiley-VCH. Please open the complete Call for Papers with all details at It contains detailed information on topics, manuscript requirements, submission instructions, the pss journals and a link to a previous CSW publication including Feature and Review article examples.

By this time the authors would have received also a personal invitation with login information from Wiley. The authors are supposed to confirm Wiley by 17 April 2020 their willingness to submit a paper via a personalized link received by them to facilitate better planning. The deadline for submission is however 30 June 2020.

The CSW’2020/2021 organization team
