Please find below an important update from the general chair regarding the transition of IPSN 2020 to a virtual conference as a consequence of COVID-19.

Dear IPSN community,

CPS week 2020 will go fully virtual, as some of you would have seen through the social media and website announcements.

The IPSN organizing committee is currently exploring different options for how to run the conference virtually, ranging from releasing pre-recorded presentations on the website to live streaming of presentations and discussions. We will be closely monitoring lessons learned from other events, such as PerCom 2020, but also general connectivity issues as the world moves towards working at home. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

We are also carefully considering our options to partially refund the existing registrations and will have more information soon. The registration website has been temporarily taken down to avoid having to refund you uncessarily. Authors should not be concerned about meeting the early registration deadline, we will be charging a flat fee. Everyone else will be able to participate for free.

On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to thank all authors and organizers for the hard work they put in to make IPSN'20 a success. I am sorry that I won't see you in Sydney next month. However, the virtual format offers an exciting opportunity to share our results in a more inclusive and environmentally friendly way and I hope will offer valuable lessons for the future events.

Stay safe!

Brano Kusy
IPSN'20 General Chair
