After internal organizing committee discussions we made difficult for us decision to postpone the conference for next year

The current situation in the world has brought unfortunately in failure our efforts with donor agencies to support IWREM 2020. That is why the organizing committee is not able to support potential contributors from the Central Asia region to present their papers during the conference.   Considering this and other uncertainties the Organizing Committee makes decision to postpone the conference until next year. New dates of the conference will be announced later this year after overcoming the pandemic.
