The date of the RECOMB-2010 conference was moved to August 12-15th.
Even though Lisbon airport remains open, many people will be facing significant difficulties
to travel here, because of connections in central Europe. Many more will probably
decide to cancel the trip, independently of the airport situation, because of all the
uncertainty this phenomenon is causing. We do firmly believe that the conditions to
organize a successful RECOMB meeting are not in place.
The organizing committees have therefore decided that the RECOMB-2010 conference
will be rescheduled to the dates of August 12-15th, in Lisbon. All the invited
speakers and panelists have agreed to the change, and we expect that all attendees
will be able to make the necessary changes in travel arrangements.
Your registration fee will, off course, be valid to the changed venue.
The organizing committee will take all steps to minimize the inconvenience that
results from this change, including the re-booking of the hotels and other reservations
you may have made with us. As you will understand, these are difficult times, and this
was a very difficult decision.
All requests for cancellation of registration and rebooking or cancellation
of the hotels should be sent directly to email@example.com.

As of today, connections with France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland and
other affected countries have been reestablished. Flights to and from the south of
Great Britain (including London) are still not operating, Direct connections to other
continents and most of southern Europe are operating normally.
We expect that a progressive normalization of the situation will take place during
the next few days, and we hope that the large majority of the atendees will be able
to make it to Lisbon, as their flights should be able to operate normally.
Monday, April 19th, 5:00PM
All airports in Portugal and Spain are open, but connections to Europe remain sparse.
Flights from southernmost cities have been operating normally, but only a
few flights from central and northern Europe have operated. We are following
the ongoing discussion about the need for the ban on european air travel.
No decision to cancel or postpone the conference has yet been taken.
Sunday, April 18th, 9:00PM
The European Union says that air traffic could return to 50% of its normal level Monday if
forecasts confirm that skies over half the continent are clearing of volcanic ash.
A progressive return to normality is expected by many observers, as test flights from a number
of airlines have shown no damage to aircraft.
Sunday, April 18th, 11:00AM
As of today, Sunday, April 18th, the airport of Lisbon remains open and flights from
the Americas, Africa and Asia have been operating normally. From Europe, flights
have been operating only from southernmost cities (Madrid, Rome, Venice,
Istambul). Other airports in Portugal remain open and internal flights are operating
We are following the situation caused by the eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano
