The tenth International Serpent User Group Meeting was hosted by Forschungsneutronenquelle Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II), TUM, in Garching, Germany, from October 27 to 30. Due to the exceptional conditions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the entire meeting was hosted remotely. A record number of 174 participants registered for the meeting.

The Serpent developer team wants to thank all participants for interesting presentations and discussion, and TUM for organizing and hosting the event.
