The third MicroQC meeting was planned to be held on March 18, 2020 in Bansko, Bulgaria within the 16th Conference on Control of Atoms, Molecules and Ensembles by Light (CAMEL16), organized by TCPA. Representative from all partner groups in MicroQC registered for participation. State of emergency and lockdown was declared in Bulgaria a few days before the conference (March 13) due to COVID-19, which resulted in the last-minute cancellation of both CAMEL16 and the MicroQC meeting.
