Dear friends and colleagues,

ful weather one day and perfect the next. An archive of the WCoP 2012 and =
2016 material has been made available in the WCoP archive here<http://www.g=>.

It is time now to seek candidate local organizers for WCoP 2020. If you an=
d your organization would consider hosting this event, please let us know y=

al restrictions apply for WCoP 2020, and locations in Korea (WCoP 2012), Au=
stralia (WCoP 2016), America and Europe will not be considered for 2020. Th=
e timing of the next conference in 2020 is not fixed, and will be decided b=
ased on local conditions and competing events.
