Important changes due to COVID pandemic!
These troubled and uncertain times, with COVID-19 spread all over the world, have made us reevaluate
the possibility of organizing ICEER2020 in Rome, in September this year, possibly with a
very small number of local participants onsite, and most of the presentations being done virtually, or
postponing the Conference one week and bringing it to ISEP, Porto, Portugal, where we can receive
participants from several countries and still have videoconference.
In fact, we believe that the biggest advantage of a standard conference is the face-to-face discussion
of the research being presented, as well as the social moments that are shared under informal
environment, allowing experiencing different cultures, which has been one of the ICEER conference
series differencing marks.
Thus, knowing there are now and will be many constraints to travel for the next months, we have
decided to organize a mixed format conference, where those that are allowed to travel and want to
participate onsite will be very welcome, but where there will also be the room for participants from
countries where there is still confinement or restrictions to travel, through videoconference.
Furthermore, if there is a significant number of participants from the same country, possibly we can
arrange joint sessions from each of these locations, coordinated by ICEER 2020 organizers.
The access to the ICEER online platform will be offered to all the registered attendees. The submission is still open and the registration page is available with new online presentation registration fee.
