First, and more importantly, we hope that you and your families remain healthy in the difficult circumstances that we are confronting these days. Our thoughts are with those who are facing health problems.
Unfortunately, the evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak shows that the crisis will most likely remain in May 2020 as pointed out by Health Organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the Health Alert and Emergency Co-ordination Centre (CCAES) of the Spanish Ministry of Health, the Andalusian Regional Ministry of Health and the Centers for Disease and Prevention. This obviously compromises the celebration of ISCAS 2020.
The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority; therefore, different contingency scenarios have been analyzed. Being ISCAS the major networking event of the IEEE Circuits and Systems (CAS) Society and aiming to preserve face-to-face interactions, the organization team and the CAS Society Governance have decided to keep the conference in Sevilla, but to postpone it to the following dates:
12-14 October 2020 (tutorials day on 11 October 2020)
We understand that some attendees might have other commitments for the new dates; therefore, we will apply flexible publication criteria for those authors who are not able to change their agendas. Additionally, the period for early registrations will be extended in due time. For those who have already booked accommodation through the ISCAS 2020 Hotel Reservation website, rooms will be available for the new dates at the same price.
We apologize for any inconvenience this postponement might cause and please contact the conference secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions you may have. Please continue to visit iscas2020.org for any updates and for further information on this postponement.
