Please note that registration for the 8th HAAL Conference (6 June 2020) has now been suspended – we have very reluctantly come to the decision to cancel the event due to the recent development of coronavirus pandemic. Full refund of registration fee will be arranged as soon as we can. Thank you for your attention and support.
