ECAI 2020 moved to August 29-September 2

On the 13th of March, ECAI has announced to postpone the conference to August/September. We are currently evaluating the options for MRC. Moving with ECAI or going fully virtual are both reasonable options for now. The Deadlines will in any case be extended till we have figured out how to proceed.

Covid-19 and MRC 2020

The Covid-19 pandemic makes drastic changes to our lifestyles necessary. It is not about containment, but about lessening the strain on our healthcare systems and about protecting the most vulnerable.

The official policy of ECAI at the time of writing is that the conference will go ahead. However, we think that the scientific community should be prepared to change the way it interacts, at least for the next couple of months.

We have therefore already started to prepare MRC for a partial or complete move to a virtual meeting. We have not figured out all the details yet, but we plan for example to make it possible to virtually attend the event in cases where travel restrictions prohibit you from joining us in person.

We would encourage you to submit to the workshop even if you are unsure whether you will be able to come to Santiago de Compostela in June. We, the workshop organizers, are as unsure about our future travel opportunities as everybody else, but this should not stop us from building our scientific community.
