The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the academic community in multiple ways, with canceled in-person events and even classes. We are also aware of our responsibility in taking precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our participants by replacing physical meetings with telecommunications as much as possible. A virtual ACIEK Conference is the best solution.
We have unanimously decided to make ACIEK 2020-Madrid the first ever virtual ACIEK Conference. Given the international situation, we have no option but to adapt, so we have decided to make the conference a fully web-based event.
To achieve the stated objectives, we will provide the means for all authors to present their papers and attend the other presentations in the technical program. The same strategy will be used for the keynote speeches and the presentations by editors on how to publish in their journals.
All presentations and papers will have the same chances of being published in the affiliated journals of the 2020 Conference in this virtual format as they had in previous in-person ACIEK Conferences. You will receive feedback and review comments in July/August after the 2020 ACIEK Conference.
Our priority must now be everyone’s safety. It is therefore with great sadness that we must postpone our regular in-person ACIEK Conferences until the Paris ACIEK Conference in June 2021. We are confident that this situation will be resolved as soon as possible, and we will once again be pleased to welcome you in person in Paris.
We offer you and your colleagues our full support during this unique situation and these uncertain times. We will remain at your side to support you in whatever you need.
