Dear friends and colleagues,

We have been hesitating how to deal with planning the 10th IMOSC which should be held at the end of November 2020. Not only the Czech Republic speculates about the second coronavirus wave coming in autumn 2020. Some of our foreign colleagues are also concerned about free access to and from Central Europe.

The above fears lead us to the proposal to postpone the date of the conference to November 2021. However, we would not like to interrupt the conference tradition, as we have managed to maintain the continuity of scientific conferences with your contribution for more than 20 years.

We would be grateful for your feedback and at the same time would like to invite you to participate in IMOSC at a new date: 24th – 27th November 2021. We believe that the issue of outdoor education and outdoor sports will be still very topical.

With kind regards,
Jan Neuman and Jiri Balas
