Update on IDC 2020 in relation to Covid‑19 (Coronavirus)
March 23, 2020
In consultation with the IDC SG chairs and the ACM we have decided not to hold the conference in London physically this year. Though this decision was disappointing, and our IDC2020 PC had planned an excellent in-person programme, the developments with Covid-19 worldwide have highlighted that our health takes priority in the coming period.
Making the decision early allows us sufficient time to rethink how we hold the conference. In the coming weeks we will be posting new updates as we start to design the virtual edition of the conference. IDC is a close-knit community, committed to benefiting children. We will identify new ways to bring our community together virtually this year.
The conference tracks continue to be open and authors will publish their work on the ACM library as initially scheduled.
