After much consideration and in light of the developing situation concerning Covid-19, we had to decide that the HRN conference in Luxembourg will no longer take place on 16-19 June 2020, but has been rescheduled to summer 2021. The exact date for the conference will be announced as soon as possible. 

The conference may be moved to 2021, but our three keynote speakers have kindly agreed to record their papers to help us all think about how network theory and analysis can be applied in historical research. The event will take place on June 19th 2020 and be entirely online: Keynotes will be streamed on Zoom and afterwards, uploaded to the HNR Youtube channel. There will also be Q&A-sessions following each presentation on Zoom.

Despite the unfortunate circumstances, we thank all of you for your efforts in contributing to the scientific programme and the HNR community and look forward to welcoming you online on June 19th and in Luxembourg in 2021. We plan to use the extra time wisely to make HNR 2021 an even better event!

With best wishes,
