New dates and changes of the postponed conference

The conference was postponed and the new date is: 16 (Monday) to 18 (Wednesday) November 2020.

Here is the information about the new deadlines:

  • Extended (additional) abstracts due date: 31 May 2020
  • Notification of (additional) acceptance: 15 June 2020, Notification of acceptance of extended abstracts is only for new papers. The programme is already filled with accepted papers, and new papers will probably be (additional) posters and maybe as orals if some oral slots become vacated if someone cannot attend the conference in November.
  • Full papers due date: 30 June 2020
  • End of peer-review: 31 August 2020
  • Final submission: 31 October 2020
  • Publication: 15 November 2020

The postponement will give us the chance to finish peer review in the approximate period from 30 June 2020 to 31 August 2020, and for authors to implement the reviewer’s comments in the period from 31 August 2020 to 31 October 2020. In this way, we could hand over to each participant a flash memory with the full refereed papers (proceedings) at the beginning of the Conference instead of the Book of Abstracts.

Regarding the Conference Fees, which remain the same, the new dates are:

  • Early fee: 30 September 2020
  • Late fee: 31 October 2020
  • At the registration desk: 15 November 2020

Regarding Hotel reservations - all have been canceled. There have been no payments, only on-line reservations guaranteed by credit cards - but none of the credit cards have been charged at all. Everybody will have to make new hotel reservation for the Conference in November using exactly the same the same channel (which is not open yet).

We are doing what we can, but even the new dates are can be in question because of many reasons: lasting epidemic, late end of epidemic, rebound of epidemic, economic situation after the epidemic, etc. But let us hope for the best and work as if everything will be over by the summer.

Best regards
