Message from ICED 2020 Conference Organisers:

The ICED 2020 conference planning committee and the ICED Board have been monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 virus across the globe. After much consideration and discussion, the 2020 ICED conference planning committee and ICED regret to announce that the ICED 2020 conference in Zurich in June has been cancelled.

This difficult decision was made in an atmosphere of great uncertainty. Its aim is to minimise financial loss for delegates and the host institution, and to provide clarity for all concerned.

All registration fees will be automatically refunded. Registered participants, accepted presenters, Student Ambassadors, scholarship holders and contributors of video statements will receive further information by email.

To further the conference theme despite cancellation, and to honour the hard work of would-be presenters, reviewers, student ambassadors and all others involved, the planning committee and the ICED Board have decided to publish a proceedings, to which all accepted presenters and student ambassadors will be invited to contribute.
Further information will follow.

That we cannot meet in person is still a huge disappointment, but we hope to keep the conversation going in this way.

Please keep an eye on the conference website and twitter account for further updates.
