Coronavirus COVID-19 Update.
Dear InSITE 2020 Conference Delegate,
It is with considerable regret that we have decided that it is not possible to hold InSITE 2020 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia as originally planned. In recent weeks it has become clear that many of our participants are not being allowed to travel and we would be doing a disservice to both ourselves and our hosts to hold a conference that was substantially less well attended than our previous InSITE’s.
Given the effort that our authors and reviewers have put into preparing for the conference, we are not “cancelling” the conference. Instead, we will be relocating it to two alternative venues:
Please register for these events at: https://www.informingscience.org/Admin/Conferences/RegistrationOptions/57?ConferenceOptionTypeID=1
As is the case for all InSITE conferences all papers from delegates paying the basic conference fee of $150 will be published in the proceedings, and the best will offered fast-tracking for publication in one of our journals.
We apologize for the need to disrupt everyone’s plans. I am sure that many of you were looking forward to visiting Cambodia as much as the Informing Science Institute’s governors were. But the health and safety or our members needs to be our principal concern. And past experience has taught us that it is better to make a painful decision in advance rather than waiting to the last minute in the hope that things will get better.
We will be running the conference in Phnom Penh with the same trips and setup and at the same time in 2021. Hopefully, we will be over this period of uncertainty by then, and we look forward to meeting all of you again.
We look forward to seeing many of you online or in Orlando this summer.
Thank you for your support!
The Board of Governors.
The Informing Science Institute.
Reviewing Starts. Papers submitted by this date will undergo the most complete and mentoring review and are the most likely to be selected for fast-tracking (publication in one of ISI's journals for the highest quality submissions.) However, submissions will be accepted after this date.
