IAPS 2020 is going virtual

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.
