Update on ICCSA2020 organisation, registration deadline (and news from the engine room)

Update on conference organisation, registration, and upcoming activities.

Dear colleagues and ICCSA participants,

Let me first, on behalf of the conference chairs and the organising committee, express our gratitude for your effort and trust.

We were astonished by your interest and the sheer quantity of proposed contributions. We have accepted about 500 paper altogether, divided between the main conference tracks and more than 50 workshops.

For all of us, these have been intensive couple of months of efforts to design and set up a productive and meaningful conference experience, adapting the established ICCSA activities to the online format.

Special praise goes to the workshop chairs, to the main tracks program committee, and to all the reviewers, who have been working hard to keep up with, and to assure a rigorous review process.
There is a tiny backlog of papers still under review which we expect to complete before the end of this week, but the bulk of it done and ready.

At this moment, we are inviting all of you who haven’t done it yet, to register for the conference by 24th June 2020:

This is a hard deadline, because, as we announced, the publication of the paper in the LNCS proceedings is conditional on the registration and on the presentation of the paper in the online session.

I don’t want to overburden you with further information in this message. Soon we will announce and publish the conference program with the scheduling of the online activities and sessions. Also, we will send you in a separate communication all the technical instructions for you to be able to participate in online activities.

To end with a cliffhanger, we have locked in a terrific line-up of speakers for keynote lectures and panels. We just need to finalise some last arrangements and details to be able to announce them, so stay tuned!

Thank you.
