IAPS 2020 is going virtual - Survey in progress

As the world is physically coming to a halt, our minds and determination are not. More than ever, we need to confront our research results, discuss future avenues and even celebrate. This is why, in a shared decision with IAPS board, we decided to innovate and go forward with a virtual conference.


This choice will respond to many young researchers who asked for this in consideration of the fight to climate change. It is now a response to the tightening economic situation: a virtual conference will save everyone huge costs in terms of travel and accommodation expenses. It is also a flexible response to health and fatigue considerations : people will be able to join the conference from anywhere they are connected. Finally, it will be an opportunity to reach out to a much larger audience worldwide.


Now, tight planning is needed to make a success of this change : rescheduling the program over many time zones to accommodate all of you; planning for new costs and, hopefully, new savings; testing technologies, etc. We are hopeful that in the course of April we will be able to send out detailed information on how it will proceed.


Your thoughts and feedback on this exciting venture are important to us : this is why you will be surveyed during the next few days.


1/ We have created a FAQ section about the transition to a virtual conference. Visit our  Updates section  for more information.

IAPS 2020 Conference

2/ Abstracts review is now complete. All authors have been informed of the results. The conference promises to be rich in content and experience, with a great participation from many pioneers of the PES as well as new researchers from different countries. If you are still waiting for the review of your submission, please contact us as soon as possible.

3/ The response to the Call for submissions was great, with over 650 submissions from many regions of the world on a wide variety of topics. The proposals are now all assigned for review and authors should expect an answer around the 15th of February. Considering the overall quality of the proposals, we can certainly assert that IAPS 2020 will be a great success!
