Corona virus outbreak

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We believe it is essential to inform all the potential participants of the forthcoming ICCSA 2021 about our ongoing organising effort, and to address the concerns amidst the uncertainties of the corona virus outbreak in Italy and in many other countries.

First of all, we want to rest you assured that we are keeping on working full steam with our local committee to guarantee a successful, stimulating and pleasant organisation of the conference in Cagliari this summer.

We understand that presently some potential conference participants may have concerns about visiting Cagliari. Although at the moment the island of Sardinia has been spared from the bulk of the Italian outbreak, the safety of the conference participants is our highest and foremost priority. So we want to assure you that, should the local conditions change to put in jeopardy the safety of the participants, we are prepared and willing to take swift and responsible decisions, following all the preventive measures recommended by the Italian and international authorities.

In the meantime, we want to categorically assure all the potential participants that the proceedings (Springer LNCS) will be published, containing all the papers that will have been registered by the established deadlines. This is our unconditional commitment, regardless of any other conceivable decision about the conference organisation. With this commitment, and in hope for a rapid improvement of the general situation, we encourage all the old and new friends to submit their papers to keep the opportunity to join us in Cagliari for the ICCSA 2021.

To put it briefly: keep calm and submit the damn paper!

We remain at your complete disposal for further information and assistance, and thank you for your attention, understanding and trust.

Best regards,
