Dear NORRAG Members:

As you may know, the CIES Board has, in consideration of the safety and health of the CIES community, cancelled the on-site conference in Miami.  We fully support the decision of the CIES Board. The following compilation of panels provides nevertheless a useful overview of the work of colleagues that would have presented at CIES 2020.
