Canceled: 6th International Castle Meeting on Coding Theory and Applications

Unfortunately the COVID-19 epidemic has now escalated to a point where
we cannot assume that it will be possible to celebrate the 6ICMCTA in
August. Also we understand that we cannot make people invest the effort
of submitting/reviewing papers or making travel arrangements in the
present situation. Thus we have taken the unpleasant decision to cancel the 6ICMCTA.
