We would like to thank all the applicants (more than 320), their supervisors and the sponsors for their continued support and interest in ICVSS 2020 even in these unprecedented times.
Given the continued threat of COVID-19 and the health guidance information from our government authorities, the organising committee has decided to postpone ICVSS 2020 until a later date when it will be safe to travel again.
Other scientific meetings have chosen the virtual option but we strongly believe that ICVSS is unique because of the real (academic and social) interaction of students with lecturers and researchers from industry. We will therefore await a date when we can meet again physically and safely.
All applications and reference letters received so far will be considered valid for the selection of the school when we are able to fix a date.
We would like to thank you all for your patience and we really hope to be back soon with better news. Our thoughts and very best wishes are with you all.
