Updates on the 5th PlanoCosmo International Conference 2020 in Relation to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Dear the 5th PlanoCosmo authors and participants,
The uncertainty with the COVID-19 pandemic, travel restrictions, and economic consequences makes planning a healthy, safe and well-attended conference difficult. After much deliberation, we have decided that the 5th PlanoCosmo Conference will take place entirely virtually. It is difficult to predict what the world will look like in October, and our first priority is this conference participants’ safety, health and well-being.
Running a virtual conference poses many challenges, but we are excited to be able to offer a useful, meaningful, and intellectually stimulating conference experience, even though we will not be physically co-located. In addition, along with the challenges, hosting a virtual conference also offers opportunities, and and we are focusing on learning from and expanding upon other conferences that are also shifting to virtual formats.
Papers will still be accepted and the proceedings will be produced as planned. Talks might be pre-recorded videos, with live Q&A sessions, more details to come. Authors are allowed to withdraw abstracts at any time between now and the due date of paper submission.
At the moment, we are in the middle of organizing the event, following the lead of other conferences and also trying to develop some new mechanisms to take advantage of the of the virtual conference format.
Registration fees will be substantially reduced and we hope this, along with least travel requirement, will allow more participants, who may not have been able to otherwise. We will follow up on this website with more detail about specific plans as we make them.
