In the light of the current coronavirus pandemic, the organization committee, the scientific steering committee and the conveners of the 6th MedCLIVAR Conference are considering the possibility to modify or postpone the event. Presently, it appears unfortunately problematic to hold the conference in the style of the past events and ensure the pleasant and safe environment that is needed for a constructive scientific discussion. Regretfully, the conference is postponed and it will be rescheduled on the basis of the future evolution of the situation.

Any decision on the conference organization will be based on the guidance from the relevant national public health authorities and global health organizations. In spite of the present emergency, we will do our best to promote the discussion of the ongoing research and communication among researchers who study the climate of the Mediterranean region.
