The AVANCA | CINEMA 2020 Conference Statement Concerning the COVID-19 Situation

In this period of health crisis caused by COVID-19, and for all the concerns about the prospect of the next Conference meeting, we felt the need to clarify and confirm that according to the previously defined calendar of the Conference, the 11th AVANCA | CINEMA 2020 will take place from 22 to 26 of July, 2020.

Today, about four months before the Conference meeting date, we are indeed very hopeful that this international health crisis would be over by then, or at least would be controlled sufficiently, in a way to allow us to move forward with our calendar. We are carefully monitoring developments and taking direction from local and national public health officials. We are paying a particular attention to the international impacts of this crisis, as many of the Conference participants are from different countries. It is inevitable to consider that only closer to the date of the conference, we can have a secure and a more comprehensive view of this problem.

The organizing team of AVANCA | CINEMA 2020 is fully committed to plan and provide a safe event for all attendees. Thus, if the situation remains critical over the next few months, the 11th edition of the Conference may have to be held online.
We already have a platform prepared for this eventuality.

Therefore, we keep the continuity according to the calendar of the Conference and are looking forward to receiving your papers and registrations. We kindly ask all the authors to follow the registration information, prepare the necessary documents and to please pay attention to the registration deadline.
We will of course keep you updated and informed about any further decisions.

We wish you good health and hope to see you soon.
