Announcement COVID-19 – BOSK 2020, The Bolzano Summer of Knowledge –

We would like to provide an update to potential BOSK authors and participants about our plans and response to the coronavirus crisis. Since the situation is changing rapidly, detailed plans for September are not announced at this point. We would, however, like to reassure everyone that BOSK 2020 will take place in virtual form, and conference and JOWO workshop proceedings will be published this year.

Most BOSK conferences are now developing alternative plans for virtual (online) conferences, whilst some events (e.g. FOIS, ERIS, ISAO) will move to September 2021 for a face-to-face Summer of Knowledge 2.1.

We will be collecting advice from other conferences that are going virtual, and will be working out the best ways to offer talks, workshops and tutorials without losing too much of the social aspects that are so important to scientific conferences.

We will continue to keep you updated about our plans. Please take care of yourself and each other.

Best regards,
BOSK 2020 Conference Committee
