Is the conference going ahead?
Due to the current situation a decision was made to postpone the conference. The new dates are: 30 June - 3 July 2021 and we are very pleased to be able to confirm that both the venue and the Keynote speakers will remain as planned for 2020.
Will the conference be cancelled?
No, we intend for the conference with the themes set to take place. It has been postponed to 30 June - 3 July 2021.
My paper was accepted. What happens if the conference is postponed?
We hope to deliver the conference exactly as intended (with the only exception being the date), therefore, all accepted papers will still be included in the programme
I might not be able to travel to the conference even if it goes ahead due to restrictions in my country. What can be done?
