Over the past few days, we have been working with our fellow organisers in Russia to fully assess the potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our event. After carefully considering the situation, we have come to the conclusion the most reasonable choices are to postpone the main event and to run an online set of presentations.
MAIN EVENT POSTPONED until further notice:
We are sure you share our disappointment regarding this unavoidable postponement. At this stage, our contingency plans are to postpone the main event until further notice and to still run some sessions on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th April online.
ONLINE EVENT: Friday 24th and Saturday 25th April
Those speakers who are kindly coming together to the online platform will be presenting their work from their respective locations and the audience will still have access to these live presentations without any risk to their health and wellbeing.
In addition to the online event, we’ll select the best papers to be published as an “ASAP Journal special issue.” Details about submissions, deadlines, review process, selection/rejection of the manuscript, etc. will follow.
ASAP Journal can be found at: http://journalasap.org/index.php/asap (the link works better using Google Chrome).
On behalf of the organisers and presenters, many thanks for your understanding and collaboration. We are all working tirelessly to ensure we firm up a date for the postponed 2020 main Symposium. In the meantime, we’ll keep you posted about the online event on 24th and 25th April 2020 and the ASAP Journal special issue.
Note: we expect to have the final details about the online event and the ASAP Journal special issue by end March.
