As COVID-19 continues to have an impact around the globe, we hope that you and your loved ones remain safe and well.

While the conference is still far away, we are continuing the preparation of the conference. If you are planning your paper submission (due on May 11th) for IMBSA 2020, don’t stop your work. All due dates are still in effect. Hope to see you all in September in Lisbon!

With the current COVID-19 situation we are unable to foresee, the conference organizers carefully observing the ongoing situation.

If conditions allow, we will have a physical conference meeting in Lisbon as planned. Otherwise we will arrange a virtual meeting with online presentations, tutorials, demos, and Q&A sessions. Nevertheless, all accepted regular papers will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
