VIRTUAL TRACKWhile we are planning for a physical conference, we are also going to offer an online track. We learned a lot from having to host the conference virtually in both 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are planning to permanently expand our virtual offering. This online-only virtual track will consist of, for example, streaming of plenary sessions, participation in moderated sessions, online networking, and virtual presentation and discussion of submitted papers. We believe that offering an online track will make our conference and community more accessible, including to those who may otherwise not be able to travel for the conference. The exact format of the online track conference will be announced later. Note that you will need to indicate during submission process whether you are submitting for the physical conference or the online track.
A NOTE ON COVID-19We will monitor the developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are assuming that we will be able to organize a physical conference but if this is not possible, we will move to a fully online format or some blended form depending on the exact situation. In any case, we are offering an online track for those who already know they will prefer a virtual experience at the time of submission (see above).
