We have been carefully monitoring the Covid-19 outbreak over the last few weeks, and have had a number of meetings with the ISCRAM Board to try to determine the best response to the evolving situation and its potential impacts on the ISCRAM 2020 conference. As a result of these discussions, we have come to the conclusion that the most appropriate decision, under the current circumstances, is to postpone ISCRAM 2020 for a year, until May 2021.

The conference will be held in the same venue next year, and it will be presented as a joint conference, along with ISCRAM 2021. We are pleased to be able to provide the opportunity for everyone who submitted their work to ISCRAM 2020 to come visit the beautiful campus of Virginia Tech next year, and we are embracing the situation as a chance to show how strong, resilient, and united our community is.

Thank you to everyone for your support and understanding. We truly believe that this is the best solution given our current circumstances, and we sincerely hope that you will be able to join us for ISCRAM 2021 at Virginia Tech next year.

ISCRAM has been on quite an extraordinary journey since May 2004, when a group of researchers active in the then newly termed “ISCRAM” domain gathered for the first time in Brussels. The ISCRAM community has continued to grow and mature ever since, attracting an increasingly diverse crowd of researchers and practitioners with a variety of interests, experiences and expertise.
