Contrary to what we have all anticipated, the COVID-19 pandemic is still around and a second wave is possible by the end of the year. Although, these developments cannot be accurately predicted, there is the possibility of continuation of restrictions in international travel. In view of this uncertainty, and after a number of requests received for virtual attendance, the Organizing Committee has decided to host the EURODYN 2020 Conference fully online.
A virtual-only Conference also has additional benefits of saving time, eliminating travel and accommodation costs, while with the use of modern communication technologies can become more engaging for the attendees. A robust virtual platform makes resources available to access even after the Conference, while allows interactions via Q&A sessions with the speakers during and after the Conference.
In this context, we are fully committed to deliver a successful virtual Conference, following the best practices of online Conferences around the world, with a strong technical programme, interactive Q&A discussions and live round-table sessions in selected topics of great scientific interest. We expect that the opportunities offered by a fully virtual event will motivate those authors of the accepted 960 Abstracts, who have not yet registered due to the uncertainty in travel restrictions, to participate in the Conference and take advantage of the benefits of attending this virtual event.
The deadline for registration for inclusion of the accepted full-length papers in the Conference Proceedings, to be published to the open access EASD Procedia and indexed in SCOPUS database, is moved to 31 August 2020.
We would also like to inform you that in order for the presentations to be included in the Conference Programme, the authors should register and send the pre-recorded video presentations no later than 16 October 2020.
Detailed instructions for the preparation of recorded video presentations will be provided shortly to the presenting authors. The pre-recorded videos will be available during the dates of the Conference and in the post-Conference video library.
For the already registered participants, the difference in the fees between the physical and the remote attendance will be refunded.
