EMCIS 2020’s top priority is the health and safety of all participants considering the expanding spread of Covid-19. The EMCIS executive committee reviewed all options available and decided to run the EMCIS 2020 conference online, given the pandemic, the travel bans, movements and gatherings restrictions issued by many governments as well as the restrictions on staff’s mobility by many universities and organizations.
The following are foreseen for EMCIS 2020:
